ORI can offer Sponsors a range of valuable benefits packages, tailored to suit your needs. From invitations to ORI events, to speaking opportunities, exclusive dinners with our international scientists, opportunities to host your clients on our remarkable traditional tall ships, and even to go on expedition, we can design a Sponsorship Package to suit your organisation. Our five-tier offer ranges from the Pacific Ocean package for major sponsors ($50,000+), through Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Southern Ocean, to our Arctic Ocean Package ($250+). 


Global Collaboration

ORI is a highly collaborative organisation working with universities, research organisations and leading scientists around the world. We  recognise the research specialties of our Ocean research colleagues, help to complement their programs where possible, and focus creatively on our own unique strengths and operational advantages. All our data will be stored on open source repositories, available free to all researchers. If you are an ocean or climate focused organisation seeking to partner with or support oceanic research, please get in touch with us. 

Reconnecting with the Ocean

Jacques-Yves Cousteau reconnected us with the Ocean: we saw his films and watched his divers – real people, not impersonal machines – descend, discover, interact, and we fell in love with the deep blue. Today, on the decks of ORI’s traditional sailing research vessels, we will see scientists, artists, filmmakers, all in action, working as one crew: weighing anchor, setting sail, weathering storms, to discover the Ocean’s extraordinary secrets, new species, hidden places. ORI expeditions are a metaphor for saving our planet: we are all in this together.

“Il faut aller voir”   (We must go and see – for ourselves)

- Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Commander, AC, FRGS
