You can accelerate an innovative scientific collaboration. 

Established in 1977, the Cooperative Institute for Climate, Ocean and Ecosystem Studies, known as JISAO until 2020, fosters innovative research collaborations between the UW and NOAA, and now academic partners at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Oregon State University. Among the oldest and largest of NOAA’s Cooperative Institutes, CICOES’ research is at the forefront of investigations on climate change, ocean processes, fisheries conservation and management, and ecosystem research. 

CICOES partners with academic and research institutions, government agencies, NGOs, and community organizations to increase scientific understanding and then apply this knowledge to find real world solutions. By working with NOAA, CICOES is able to strengthen and extend its areas of research and expertise in order to serve the widest possible regional, national, and global community interests.

On Husky Giving Day, we invite you to invest in CICOES by supporting the CICOES Discretionary Fund which accelerates CICOES research, education, and outreach programs around climate change, ocean processes, and ecosystem conservation.
