Partners Institutions:

ACT partners include academic research institutions with coastal and ocean science and technology expertise, and that represent a broad range of environmental conditions for instrument testing. The Partner institutions help identify technologies to be evaluated and themes for workshops, and carry out these activities regionally. They are also responsible for conducting regional outreach activities and serve as information conduits to the broader community.
