Cutting Edge Research at the Ocean Frontier

OGEN catalyzes unique partner opportunities for leading ocean researchers

Leverage your funds

Overall, partners fund half of the cost of the positions, supervisors/universities fund a quarter, and a quarter is contributed through OGEN donor funding to catalyze the agreement. This provides significant leverage for all partners and researchers involved, ensuring an advantageous funding model even when salaries are higher than average.

Broader reach for student recruitment

The generous student stipend is competitive and appealing to top-tier and international  students.

OFI supports student recruitment through promotion across far-reaching, international networks and advertisements in highly visible venues.


Forge new government and industry partnerships, learn about pressing community and market challenges, and allow your research to create a greater impact within society.
