Partners & Sponsors

Partners of the the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are attracted here by the creative, can-do environment we maintain in the lab and at sea. This not only fosters breakthrough discovery, but it also supports further innovation and spurs entrepreneurial growth well beyond the Institution. WHOI also provides our partners with connections in the worlds of research, engineering, and education that only a global leader in scientific research and ocean exploration can provide.
