Moore Foundation Gives WHOI $250,000 for Ocean Research

WHOI EffortWOODS HOLE – The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation have announced their support for Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scientists and engineers to explore a new path for ocean research focused on rapid software and hardware innovation.

WHOI will explore industry partnerships, agile development practices, and novel engineering approaches over the next 18 months with the $250,000 award.

Investigators involved in the project will explore new processes for ocean engineering using autonomous underwater vehicles as proof of concept.

WHOI engineers and researchers will incorporate knowledge and experience gained through partnerships with key organizations in the private sector.

The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is a private, non-profit organization on Cape Cod dedicated to marine research, engineering, and higher education.

Established in 1930 on a recommendation from the National Academy of Sciences, its primary mission is to understand the ocean and its interaction with the Earth as a whole, and to communicate a basic understanding of the ocean’s role in the changing global environment.

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation fosters path-breaking scientific discovery, environmental conservation, patient care improvements and preservation of the special character of the Bay Area.
