REV Ocean will be opening its first call for proposals for research and innovation projects on board RV REV Ocean in April 2020. The call will focus on solutions to three of the most important challenges facing the ocean today:
- Plastic pollution;
- Climate change / ocean acidification;
- Overfishing and destructive fishing impacts.
All projects will be evaluated in a thorough and transparent international peer-reviewed process. The successful proposals will have access to the vessel and its equipment for cruises in 2022. The date of announcement and closing for this call will be relatively short, so interested parties should follow their social media and website for updates on the call opening and results.
