Changing Arctic Ocean - Announcement of Opportunity second call
Closing date for proposals: 16:00 on 14 September 2017
Proposals are invited for submission to a jointly funded activity between funding agencies in the UK and Germany on Changing Arctic Ocean: Implications for marine biology and biogeochemistry.
The overarching objective of this call is to improve our understanding of how changes in the physical environment (ice and ocean) will affect the large-scale ecosystem structure and biogeochemical functioning of the Arctic Ocean, to understand the potential major impacts and to provide projections for future ecosystem services.
Up to €8 million is available to fund up to ten research projects, which must include at least one principal / co-investigator from each of the funding partner countries and must address the aims of the programme.
Please see the Announcement of Opportunity below for full details of the call and how to apply.
The UK has recently funded four projects under the first round of the Changing Arctic Ocean research programme. These projects will have major field campaigns in the summers of 2017, 2018 and 2019. Applicants to the current call are encouraged to develop project proposals that complement and do not duplicate the existing projects. Information on these projects can be found in the documents below.
