Preannouncement: March 13, 2017
Opening: April 1, 2017
Closing: May 31, 2017
Outcome: October 17, 2017

In 2017, EuroMarine organises two distinct, parallel calls: 

  • A call for proposals of activities (the present call)
  • A call for application for individual fellowships (targeting EuroMarine PhD students and scholars in their first post-doctoral position, to let them attend an advanced course of their choice)

The general terms of both calls have been preannounced on 13 March 2017.

Overview - Call for proposals for FWS and WG

The eligible categories of activities that will be funded in 2017 are limited to:

  • Foresight Workshops ('horizon scanning', FWS) – maximum funding: 7,500 €
  • EuroMarine Working Groups (WG) addressing strategic services or issues – maximum funding: 5,000 €

To be eligible, scientific proposals should address EuroMarine priorities, as defined in the 2015 summary text on EuroMarine scientific strategy.

Proposals should involve at least three 2017 Full (paying) Member Organisations of EuroMarine, from at least two different countries. (Please refer to the provisional 2017 membership list and the corresponding list of General Assemblty representative, both attached to the present call, and do not hesitate to contact secretariatateuromarinenetwork [dot] eu for any contact information).

Activities should preferably be carried out in 2018 and any exemption should be justified in the proposal.

The two sets of proposals corresponding to the above two categories will be reviewed separately using specific criteria and specific pools of EuroMarine referees. The EuroMarine Steering Committee will make final decisions.
