Marine Integrated Autonomous Observing Systems Announcement of Opportunity

Closing date for proposals: 16:00 on 28 June 2017

Proposals are invited for a new research programme on improving understanding of shelf sea ecosystem function using integrated autonomous observing systems.

This research programme will address the scientific and technological challenges of using new technologies to deliver a more efficient and integrated next-generation UK marine observing programme, capable of meeting science and policy data requirements now and into the future.

Up to £1·8m is available for this call to fund one research project to address challenge two of the programme.
