Corporate membership of the Consortium for Marine Robotics (CMR) provides a privileged and sustained access to research and development in marine robotics conducted at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Consortium’s academic partner institutions.
Member benefits include:
- » Establish a portfolio of sponsored research projects or define an engineering research program tailored to your company’s needs, with negotiated IP rights.
- » Support graduate students or postdoctoral investigators who will participate in your company’s sponsored research projects.
- » Place a company researcher in a CMR lab, with the prior approval of the participating CMR principal investigator.
- » Participate on a committee that selects and reviews the progress of innovative research projects proposed by CMR investigators and funded through a CMR members’ pool of funds.
- » Receive research progress reports and pre-prints.
- » 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 Consortium for Marine Robotics, providing support for planning, hiring a director, defining the Consortium’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:
- » Consortium 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 Consortium today »
