Posted by on in GOMURC Program News

The Gulf of Mexico University Research Collaborative (GOMURC) and the Consortium of Marine Research Institutions of the Gulf of Mexico (CIIMAR-GOM) signed an agreement amendment to continue their partnership to support Gulf of Mexico environmental science and education. The original MOU created in 2014 is extended through 2017. The agreement has forged closer ties between the science community, for example, providing resources to enable students and scientists to attend science conferences in the partner countries.
