NOAA names University of Michigan to host cooperative institute for Great Lakes region

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration today announced it has selected the University of Michigan to continue hosting NOAA’s cooperative institute in the Great Lakes region. 

NOAA made the selection after an open, competitive evaluation to continue funding the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR), formerly called the Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystems Research. 

The selection comes with a commitment of up to $20 million over the course of the five-year award, with the potential for renewal for another five years based on successful performance.

“Our cooperative institutes provide real partnership, expertise and flexibility, which is very important in achieving NOAA’s mission,” said Craig McLean, NOAA’s assistant administrator for NOAA Research. “They provide a talented body of scientists, diverse thinking, and nimble responsiveness to our needs while helping to train the next generation of researchers. Our nation's stewardship of the Great Lakes, which contain 90 percent of our nation's surface freshwater, is strengthened by this dynamic research collaboration.”
