NURP Facilities
NURP is comprised of a network of regional centers of undersea science and technology excellence located primarily at major universities. This extramural network facilitates collaborations with programs outside NOAA, leverages external funds and infrastructure and provides access to world-class expertise and students. Federal grants support six regional centers and a national technology institute that undergo periodic external review. NURP supports over 100 projects each year that involve hundreds of scientists and students from across the country. NURP projects are selected by a rigorous peer-review process based on scientific merit and relevance to NOAA and national research requirements. These projects typically lead to peer-reviewed publications being added to the scientific literature.
