University Initiatives Program

With a $125,000 grant from the NJEDA, The University Initiatives to Advance Offshore Wind (UI) program is designed to support projects that build long-term industry-valued expertise in offshore wind. There are three projects as a part of the UI program: 

  • Educational Initiatives for a Resilient Offshore Wind Economy in NJ
  • The Offshore Wind Symposium 
  • Community Events and Shared Learning. 

The UI Program is overseen by the Offshore Wind Collaborative, a group of faculty and researchers who work together to address the needs of the industry while building the future workforce in offshore wind.
