Promoting Partnerships for the Future of the Ocean, Coasts and Great Lakes

The National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) is an innovative collaboration of Federal agencies that supports and coordinates ocean research partnerships among state and tribal governments, academia, private industry, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Under the interagency guidance of the NOPP, these sectors are able to form partnerships that more efficiently pursue the Nation's most pressing research needs on ocean science and technology priorities. NOPP investments encompass a broad range of issues in oceanographic research and exploration, education, maritime safety, data- and sampling-technologies, and marine resource management. These focus-areas have led to a variety of advances, among them global ocean observation systems, enhanced weather forecasting technologies, continental shelf surveys, ecosystems mapping, renewable energy exploration, and successful marine science education programs. Since 1997, NOPP has provided an effective forum to leverage Federal investments that foster the development of interagency research initiatives which are able to transcend single-agency mandates and resource limitations in the common pursuit of wise use of the ocean, coasts and Great Lakes.
