Open call to appoint new OCEAN Expert Committee members is now live!

Defra is looking for individuals from around the world who, as leaders in their field, can contribute at the highest levels and work effectively as part of the OCEAN Expert Committee. New members will join other marine and development experts in providing high quality, specialist advice on which OCEAN project applications should receive funding.

Members will be expected to:

  • assess and score applications against set criteria, to agreed timelines and standards, to enable Defra to award funding to high-quality projects;
  • provide strategic advice; and
  • champion the OCEAN Grants Programme

Applications from a wide range of backgrounds and global contexts are welcomed, including the private sector, academia and professional institutions, non-governmental organisations, and other stakeholders. Applicants can be based anywhere, but applications from those in low- and middle-income ODA-eligible countries are particularly encouraged.

The closing date for applications: 19 July 2024
