- Attend robotics seminars, courses and in-water demonstration of CMR technologies, and an annual research conference on the future of marine robotics.
- Participate in an industry advisory committee meeting to provide recommendations on overall CMR direction and strategy.
- Recruit robotic engineers and ocean scientists from the WHOI-MIT Joint Program.
Private philanthropy is playing a large role in the creation of the Center for Marine Robotics, providing support for planning, hiring a director, defining the Center’s scope, and identifying priorities for the future. Further investment promises to speed the pace of innovation and enhance WHOI’s margin of excellence.
Several funding opportunities are available:
» Center for Marine Robotics general support
» CMR Fellowship support
» Gifts to an accelerator fund to seed new projects
» Funding of specific flagship projects
Each of these donor opportunities fund projects with promising scientific, education, industrial and military applications. Support the center today »
