About Us

Schmidt Ocean Institute is a 501(c)3 U.S. non-profit private operating foundation (www.schmidtocean.org) established in March 2009 to advance ocean research and conservation with innovative technologies and open sharing of information. We bring together advanced science and state-of-the-art technologies to make lasting environmental impact and catalyze open sharing of the resulting knowledge with the audiences around the world. We demonstrate how new intelligent, scalable, cost- efficient tools and workflows can effectively address major challenges in marine conservation and research and foster their adoption by others. We operate globally using our state-of-the art research vessel Falkor and a wide range of innovative robotic systems and platforms. We provide our collaborators with free access to these facilities in exchange for a commitment to openly share the resulting scientific data and communicate research findings. The Institute is devoted to the inspirational vision of our Founders that the advancement of technology and open sharing of information will remain crucial to understanding and conservation of the world’s oceans.
