OCIA is a first-of-its-kind consortium bringing together industry, academia, and philanthropy focused on advancing knowledge of the ocean’s critical role as a defense against a warming planet. OCIA is tasked with developing and accelerating new technology solutions at the intersection of oceans and climate.
“Through OCIA, we are committed to engaging ADI’s engineers and technologies to advance knowledge of the oceans, in order to gain a better understanding of how oceans are impacted by climate change and to develop solutions to restore ocean health. By doing so, we hope to drive meaningful impact on the global fight against climate change.”

The formation of the OCIA consortium comes at a time when support for science and ocean research is at a critical juncture. We are building a research innovation ecosystem that will drive new understanding to tackle global challenges facing society. It provides a new, scalable model showing how corporations can engage deeply on the climate crisis.
