EuroMarine 2017 Calls launched to support foresight activities and capacity building in marine sciences
- Last Updated: 11 April 2017
Scientists from EuroMarine Member Organisations are invited to apply for the two EuroMarine 2017 Funding Calls, one for scientific and foresight activities and the other a programme for early career scientists to attend training courses. Member Organisations can be viewed at: www.euromarinenetwork.eu/documents/euromarine-2017-membership-list.
EuroMarine is a European marine research network that funds scientific, foresight and training activities, and fosters new services relevant to the marine research community in cooperation with other organisations and projects. With limited funding, EuroMarine has supported over 52 scientific, foresight and training activities involving more than 1,000 scientists and stakeholders to share, collaborate and collectively push boundaries within marine science in the past three years.
The eligible categories of activities that will be funded in the 2017 Call for Proposals are:
• Foresight Workshops ('horizon scanning'); and
• EuroMarine Working Groups addressing strategic services or issues.
Scientific proposals should address EuroMarine priorities, and should involve at least three 2017 Full Member Organisations of EuroMarine, from at least two different countries. The submission deadline is 31 May 2017. An overview of the call terms, as well as links to the full call text, a proposal template, terms and conditions of funding, a list of member organisations and other relevant documents can all be found on the call webpage: www.euromarinenetwork.eu/call2017_FWS_WG.
EuroMarine also considers supporting capacity building for young scientists a key priority. Therefore, EuroMarine has launched a new Young Scientist Fellowship Programme focused on financially supporting individual early career scientists from EuroMarine Member Organisations to participate in training courses. The application deadline for the Individual Fellowships is 2 May 2017. For further information please see: www.euromarinenetwork.eu/call2017_fellowships.
