Science isn’t done in a vacuum.  To bring science to stakeholders and extend the value of the work, UCP programs focus on education and training, data and visualization, logistical support and staffing solutions.  Find out more about the UCP programs here:

The COMET® Program is a world-wide leader in support of education and training for the environmental sciences, delivering scientifically relevant and instructionally progressive products and services.

COSMIC hosts U.S. and international visitors for collaboration on topics relevant to research and applications in radio occultation. Prospective visitors can be either invited or request visits, but all must have a COSMIC host who agrees to sponsor the collaboration, and/or direct the research or project. Travel expenses and other support are usually provided by the visitor, but may be available through COSMIC.

CPAESS (Collaborative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science) collaborates with the international scientific community, and has a broad range of professional positions available in research and operational settings across the United States. Postdoctoral fellowships are also available.

Unidata provides a variety of services for geoscience researchers, ranging from access to real-time and archive data, a variety of software packages for managing and visualizing geoscience data, and comprehensive support and training for our services and software. Unidata also works as an advocate for the geoscience research community on issues related to data access. See Unidata’s Projects page to learn more about some of our collaborations with universities, research groups, and government agencies.
