EuroMarine 2023 Call for Proposals for Long Term Scientific Working Groups (deadline 14 October)

The EuroMarine Consortium has allocated funding for the establishment of inclusive and multidisciplinary Long-Term Scientific Working Groups (WG). The aim of the Working Groups is to provide an open forum for discussion among EuroMarine members.

Applications must be submitted before the specified deadline: 14 October 2022 at 23.59 CET.

EuroMarine is a European, marine science network launched in 2014 and designed as a bottom-up organisation to act as a voice of the European marine scientific community. It is intended as a durable organisation and a legal entity placed under the control of the consortium that gathers all members and was established in 2018 as a support structure. As of May 2022, EuroMarine counts 59-member organisations (MOs).

The two primary goals of EuroMarine are:

  • To support the identification and initial development of important emerging scientific topics and methodologies in marine sciences;
  • To foster new services relevant to the marine scientific community.

EuroMarine achieves these goals through internal competitive calls for proposals. It is expected that support for these activities and their outcomes will help to leverage larger projects under European, national or joint research funding programmes. EuroMarine advocates for marine science and contributes to improving the science-governance interface, providing expertise and transferring knowledge.

Two topics are proposed for the Working Groups:

1. Working Group 1: Ocean Decade, Mission Ocean and other international initiatives

2. Working Group 2: Emerging and important topic requiring European-wide coordination.

For the 2022 call, EuroMarine will fund 2 Long-Term Scientific Working Groups (LTSWG) with a maximum funding of €12,500 each. The aim of the LTSWG is to provide the EuroMarine community with recommendations on how to best contribute to the international and European initiatives for restoring and sustainably exploit our Oceans as well as to advance the research on emerging topics related to marine sciences. The LTSWG should have a duration of at least 3 years. They should have well-defined outcomes (e.g., synthesis paper, position paper, strategy document). All LTSWG are expected to yield publications (at a minimum, a position paper, or recommendations to the EuroMarine community to be submitted at the end of the LTSWG).
