NCCR is a proud partnership with UMass Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, and Lowell campuses.  Leveraging world-class scientists and scholars from across the Commonwealth’s public universities, the Center aims to be a catalyst, accelerating resilience, adaptation planning, and a just blue economy in New England. NCCR’s research team includes over 60 faculty with expertise ranging from physical sciences to engineering, technology, socio-economic and behavioral sciences, and stakeholder engagement.  Servicing as a hub, the NCCR team is also actively developing collaborative partnerships with municipalities, planning agencies, public agencies, non-profit organizations, businesses, and other local stakeholders.  Each campus brings important collaborating units to the NCCR partnership: UMass Amherst’s School of Earth & Sustainability and Gloucester Marine Station, UMass Boston’s Stone Living Lab and Nantucket Field Station, UMass Dartmouth’s School for Marine Science & Technology, and UMass Lowell’s Rist Institute for Sustainability & Energy.
