The Blue Institute is a strategic consortium of dedicated partners including leading research universities, professional and trade organizations, industry, practitioners, land & marine farmers, and local communities working together to design and create a creative cross-disciplinary academic curriculum, research facility, blue tech incubator, and water testing labs that take advantage of the unique fresh and saltwater ecosystem at and surrounding Cape Cod.
Research residencies open to scientists, graduate students and advanced undergraduates completing capstone projects. Access to water tech innovation incubator, fresh and salt water testing sites, and marine environments. The Institute supports sustainable water research bringing together private and public sector projects and scientists in a unique academic and environmental ecosystem fostering collaborative exchanges.
Water-centric undergraduate “semester away” program comprised of hands on experiential learning drawing from cross-disciplinary fields integrating science, art, policy, engineering, humanities, economics, and technology to introduce students to the burgeoning opportunities for the “blue economy," & to create a generation of “water knowledge ambassadors" to better serve the World.
Integrating the latest in water technologies and marine robotics. The technology employed will engage students, enable research, drive efficiencies in water cleaning capabilities and aqua farming, and inspire imaginative and innovative solutions based on the latest sound scientific inquiry. Blue technology innovation, development co-investment projects help to drive growth of “Blue” technologies on a regional and global dimension.
Testing - Both water quality and pathological testing labs support municipal and commercial customer’s water testing needs as well as the regional aqua farming community. K-12 Educational support for teachers through hands-on research focused workshops. Cross-generational collaborations through classroom and onsite experiential learning incorporating schools, community, and senior citizen area programs.
