A new Cooperative Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

Through CICOES, NOAA can tap into the brainpower at universities in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska to help meet research, education, and public engagement goals.

Fostering collaborative, multidisciplinary research across ocean, atmosphere, and fishery sciences, we are:

  • One of 17 cooperative institutes nationwide. NOAA funds Cooperative Institutes at universities with strong research programs to extend basic and applied research beyond NOAA’s own capacity.

  • Led by the University of Washington, with consortium partners Oregon State University and the UAF International Arctic Research Center.
