NOAA Cooperative Institutes

The NOAA Cooperative Institutes are academic and non-profit research institutions that demonstrate the highest level of performance and conduct research that supports NOAA's Mission Goals and Strategic Plan. Cooperative Institutes are located at institutions whose geographic expanse extends from Hawaii to Maine and from Alaska to Florida. Currently, NOAA supports 16 Cooperative Institutes consisting of 42 universities and research institutions across 23 states and the District of Columbia

NOAA Research Laboratories

The NOAA Research Laboratories conduct an integrated program of research, technology development, and services to improve the understanding of Earth's atmosphere, oceans and inland waters, and to describe and predict changes occurring to them. The laboratories and their field stations are located across the country and around the world.

NOAA Technology Partnerships Office

The Technology Partnerships Office, or TPO, serves the needs of both NOAA inventors and U.S. companies looking to partner with NOAA or license our technologies. Located in Silver Spring, MD, the NOAA OTP oversees both the Small Business Innovation Research Program and the Technology Transfer Program for NOAA.

NOAA Mourns CIMMS Director Dr. Peter Lamb

We are saddened by the passing of friend and colleague, Dr. Peter Lamb, who passed away unexpectedly May 28, 2014. 

"Peter was a brilliant scientist, an advocate for the important work that we all do, and a friend," said Craig McLean, Acting Assistant Administrator for Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.  "Our community is remarkably smaller today, as his presence and good will have been so large."

"Peter Lamb was a colleague, mentor, friend, and strong advocate for cooperative research between the university community and NOAA." noted Philip L. Hoffman, OAR CI Program Director.  "He offered leadership to his peers when they needed it, and he was enormously successful in making the Cooperative Institute community as strong as it is."
