OOI hosts workshops to help encourage integration of OOI data into scientific research and use in the classroom. Information about past and upcoming workshops can be found here.

Members of the oceanographic community are also encouraged to host workshops about the OOI or how to use its data. While such community workshops are not funded by the OOI, we are happy to support them by helping to increase awareness of plans and possibly provide OOI data experts. If you are planning such a workshop, please reach out to so we can help maximize its success and help spread the word.
