Safe and sustainable development of the ocean frontier
The Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI) is a collaborative research initiative to harness the vast potential of the world’s ocean. An international hub for ocean science, OFI brings together researchers and institutes from both sides of the North Atlantic to understand our changing ocean and create safe, sustainable solutions for development.
OFI represents a historic partnership between Dalhousie University, Memorial University of Newfoundland and the University of Prince Edward Island. The support of partners in the Government of Canada’s federal laboratories, the Royal Canadian Navy, National Film Board of Canada and national and international industry, as well as knowledge shared by eight international scientific organizations will establish Canada as a global leader in transformative ocean research.
