This scheme aims to provide support for UK scientists to undertake small scale IODP-related activities. This could include but is not limited to:
- the organisation of, or participation in, workshops
- other events.
Any activity that benefits UK IODP will be considered for funding.
Any proposed workshops must make use of one of the following:
- IODP samples
- data or results
- planning for the collection of such materials (for example, cores collected as part of an expedition).
You can apply for between £2,000 and £10,000. In exceptional circumstances, requests for larger amounts of funding will be considered.
You should have considered other sources of funding prior to submitting applications to this scheme, particularly the MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme. You must provide an explanation if you have not applied to such schemes.
This scheme is open for applications at any time during the current phase of the UK IODP research programme (2020 to 2024). The funding of applications by NERC will, however, be subject to UK IODP having funding available in its budget.
