NOAA awards $22.5 million to Harbor Branch/FAU and UNCW for new cooperative institute
Date:5/12/2009

BOCA RATON, FL (May 12, 2009) The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced a five-year, $22.5 million award of a new cooperative institute which will be headquartered at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) at Florida Atlantic University in Fort Pierce, Florida, and co-managed by the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW). This is the single largest competitive research grant awarded to HBOI/FAU since their inception. The Cooperative Institute for Ocean Exploration, Research, and Technology is a consortium; limited partners are SRI International in St. Petersburg, Florida, and the University of Miami, Rosentiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science in Miami, Florida. The consortium will coordinate the work and resources of all of the member organizations for the purpose of advancing NOAA's priorities.

"This is an important day for Harbor Branch, Florida Atlantic University, our partners and the coastal ocean of the eastern seaboard," said Dr. John Pritchett, university provost and chief academic officer of FAU. "This cooperative institute will advance ocean science, gather the information necessary to formulate better policies and improve the process of innovation."

The new institute will conduct research under three main themes: development of advanced underwater technologies, exploration and research of frontier regions of the eastern continental shelf and beyond, and improved understanding of deep and shallow coral ecosystems. NOAA's Office of Ocean Exploration and Research will be the institute's primary NOAA partner, which will replace the four east coast centers of NOAA's Undersea Research Program.

"We are thrilled by this opportunity to enter into an equal partnership with FAU, taking full advantage of the specific areas of expertise and research strengths of both institutions," said Dr. Steve McFarland, vice provost at UNCW. "UNCW has had a strong, productive relationship
