EuroMarine advocates for marine science and contributes to improving the science-governance interface, providing expertise and transferring knowledge. EuroMarine considers supporting capacity building for young scientists a key priority. For this, EuroMarine currently funds the OYSTER (Orienting Young Scientist of EuroMarine) Working Group. OYSTER is an independent working group dedicated to promoting and supporting opportunities for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) in marine science. As such, OYSTER has opened the current 2nd Call for Marine ECR Cooperation Projects. This call for proposals offers funding to ECRs from EuroMarine Full Member and Invited Member Organisations to undertake an original and collaborative research and innovation project. The objective is to build networks within EuroMarine, bringing together ECRs through collaborative research projects. For the 2023 Call, OYSTER will fund 2 Marine ECR Cooperation Projects with a maximum funding of €7,500 per project. Only Early Career Researchers (ECRs) are eligible for funding. Please see the box below for the definition of Early Career Researcher in the framework of this call.

Proposals should involve two or three ECRs (students or employees - under an employment contract or equivalent appointing act) of an EuroMarine 2023 Full Member or Invited Member Organisation  from at least two different countries.
