Where your gifts go

Industry and individual donations to the COPRI Research Fund support projects that:

  • directly contribute to advancing quality data and content of COPRI standards and manuals of practice
  • identify and develop industry-driven research concepts and objectives for new COPRI standards and manuals of practice

Your gift will be used immediately to address the following research needs identified by COPRI committees:

  • improved strain limits for seismic loading of waterfront structures supported on steel pipe piles
  • improved vessel loading data for the design of port structures and
  • design for climate-resilient waterfront structures and communities
