SOOS New Partnership Agreement

SOOS is excited to announce a new partnership agreement for hosting of the SOOS International Project Office!

In 2020, the University of Tasmania Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (UTAS-IMAS), the Tasmanian State Government, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) will form a 3-year partnership to support the continuation of the SOOS IPO in Hobart, Australia. This builds on the 8-years of hosting already provided by the University of Tasmania, and we are thankful for their continued support. We also look forward to working and engaging with our two new sponsors, CSIRO and State Government, in the years to come.

We would like to thank the Australian Research Council’s Antarctic Gateway Partnership for their significant support over the last 4 years, in addition to all our core sponsors in 2019: The State Oceanic Administration of China, the University of Gothenburg (Sweden), and Antarctica New Zealand.
