Ocean Innovation

Rhode Island is called "the ocean state" for a reason. We have long-been known for our leadership in ocean-related academics, industry, and innovation. We have the ability to bring together leaders in defense, maritime, research, and environmental disciplines to create cutting-edge ocean science solutions. As examples, the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography and the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) are world-renowned for their contributions to ocean science.
