Marine Infrastructure Call 2017

The Marine Institute has announced the launch of a €2m Marine Infrastructure Call 2017, with awards of between €20,000 and €200,000. The call was launched by Minister Creed, and it aims to raise the performance of the marine research and innovation community across all areas. 

The value of funding awarded depends on the scope of the successful applications. Applications for equipment for less than €20,000 will not be accepted.

ERA-PLANET Joint Transnational Call

This is a transnational call for collaborative projects.  The call is open to ERA-PLANET beneficiaries. It will use a two-step selection process to choose the most innovative and competitive proposals related to four specific themes:

  • Smart cities and resilient societies
  • Resource efficiency and Environmental management
  • Global changes and Environmental treaties
  • Polar areas and Natural resources

The call is now entering its second stage, with the first stage having concluded. 

POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowships

The Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans and Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (POGO) is currently promoting its Visiting Fellowship Programme for 2017. A joint programme between POGO and the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR), the programme is designed to support training and capacity building leading towards a global observation scheme for the oceans. A success for over 15 years, the programme has awarded over 160 fellowships since 2001.

International Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program, LabexMER

The LabexMER partners have created a new post-doctoral program, inspired by successful similar programs such as the U.S.A. NOAA Climate Change and Global Change postdoctoral program or WHOI postdoctoral fellowship. It allow young scientists to propose their own research project in marine sciences (within the LabexMER research axes) to be carried out in one or several LabexMER laboratories.  The competitive awards are designed to further the education and training of the applicant with primary emphasis placed on the individual's research promise and relevance to Labex Mer research Axis.

Call Open: Training Through Research Surveys Scheme 2017

The Strategic Marine Alliance for Research & Training (SMART), in collaboration with the Marine Institute, has announced a number of marine research placements on a range of research surveys on board the National Research Vessels, RV Celtic Explorer and RV Celtic Voyager. On-board placements provide the experience and skills required to work at sea and facilitate career development in ocean science. Participation also serves as a valuable opportunity to network with leading Irish and European marine scientists.

2nd ENVRIplus call for proposals for multi-disciplinary access to Environmental Research Infrastructures

TNA within ENVRIplus is provided free of charge to selected user groups (single user or user teams). User refers to any scientific researcher, student, engineer, technician, agent from both the public and private sector who needs the support of a multi-disciplinary environmental research platform to perform basic, applied or industrial research, for testing and calibration of instruments, for training of users, for educational purposes, etc.

The support of the infrastructure includes:

AQUAEXCEL2020 Fourth Call for Access Now Open

On a regular basis, the AQUAEXCEL2020 project will invite proposals from European research groups for scientific research that utilises the facilities of any of the participating aquaculture research infrastructures. The AQUAEXCEL2020 project unites major aquaculture experimental facilities with capacity to undertake experimental trials on a selection of commercially important fish aquaculture species and system types.
