ERC Starting and Consolidator Grants are designed to support excellent Principal Investigators (PIs) at the career stage at which they are starting or consolidating their own independent research team or programme. Principal Investigators must demonstrate the ground-breaking nature, ambition and feasibility of their scientific proposal. ERC grants are open to researchers of any nationality who intend to conduct their research activity in any EU Member State or Associated Country.
IMBER (Integrated Marine Biosphere Research) is planning to hold its second Open Science Conference (OSC) in 2019. The five-day OSC will provide a focus for the integration and synthesis of IMBER research activities with the goal of providing new understanding and quantification of the past, present and future structure and functioning of linked ocean and human systems in order to develop options for securing or transitioning towards ocean sustainability.
IMBER is requesting proposals to host the OSC. Expected participation is between 250 and 500 people.
IMBER´s regional programme CLIOTOP (Climate Impacts on Top Oceanic Predators) seeks suggestions for new task teams to start in 2017. There is a small amount of seed funding available that can be used for team members to meet, to hold a workshop or to cover publication costs.
CLIOTOP was established in 2005 and is now in its third phase (2016-2020). CLIOTOP is an international research network open to researchers, managers, and policy makers involved in marine research related to large marine species.
This Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) /European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) call for tender is to enter into a service contract for a study to assist the European Commission to play a role in international ocean governance in support of development policy. The study will define capacity development projects which the EU can implement in selected partner countries under the sustainable fisheries partnership agreements (SFPA) in the Central Eastern Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

The delegation agreement between the European Union, represented by the European Commission, and Mercator Ocean for setting-up the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service, led Mercator Ocean to issue a range of calls for tender to create the necessary strong network of partners. Open calls:
The Marine Institute is pleased to launch a call for proposals under the topic of Ocean Acidification and Biogeochemistry. Sustainable exploitation of Ireland’s extensive marine resource as envisaged in Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth is predicated on conserving a healthy and productive marine environment.This project aims to build national capacity in Ireland for ocean acidification/biogeochemical research and observation and to study trends and variability in bio
The Marine and Freshwater Research Centre (MFRC) at the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) offers to host highly motivated, experienced researchers who wish to apply for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship in Ireland.
The Marie Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA IF) is a European funding programme that supports mobility and career development. It offers competitive salary, mobility and family allowances and research costs. The Fellowship may last 12-24 months.
