The structure of the IO is illustrated in the above organogramme. The IO Director is the administrative head of the Institute, supported by the Secretariat & Administrative Unit, and advised by the Scientific Council. The Institute comprises five Scientific Departments: Ocean Physics, Biological Oceanography, Marine Chemistry, Marine Geology & Geophysics and Marine Observatories and Operational Oceanography.

A new cross-departmental Unit, named Marine Oceanographic Data and Information Systems, has derived from joining the Hellenic National Oceanographic Data Center-HNODC and the Geographical Information Systems Unit. The new unit interacts with all Departments and Research Infrastructures.

The IO comprises also large Research Infrastructures: Marine Analytical Laboratories, Poseidon observing and forecasting system, HIMIOFoTS, and Mesocosms.
