Who We Are

The Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (AORA) between Canada, the European Union and the United States was launched by the signatories of the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation in May 2013. The AORA intend to advance the shared vision of an Atlantic Ocean that is healthy, resilient, safe, productive, understood and treasured so as to promote the well-being, prosperity and security of the present and future generations.

The AORA Cooperation is led by;

The challenge of keeping our ocean healthy is too great for any one nation to tackle alone. Together, we are building an Atlantic community of researchers, policymakers, businesses and citizens. This Atlantic Community extends across and along the Atlantic Ocean.

AORA facilitates common research and knowledge exchange for us to provide healthy, resilient oceans for our future generations.
