In 2021 EuroMarine is organising a slate of distinct, parallel calls:
- A call for proposals of Foresight Workshops (this call)
- A call for application for individual fellowships (targeting EuroMarine PhD students and scholars within five years of their doctoral degree)
- A call for proposals to organise a EuroMarine Summer School on Ocean Transformation (targeting summer 2022)
- A call for nominations for the PEARL Working Group (nominees should be recently retired marine researchers)
- A call for topics for EuroMarine Podcasts (this is a non-competitive, volunteer-driven trial)
The general terms of these calls have been preannounced on 18 May 2021.
Overview - Call for proposals for FWS
In 2021 EuroMarine will be funding Foresight Workshops ('horizon scanning', FWS), with each funded FWS receiving up to a maximum of €7,500.
- FSW proposals should have a clear foresight dimension and target a scientific publication. While the call is open to any topic, the Steering Committee would welcome proposals addressing EuroMarine priorities, as defined in EuroMarine's 2018 publication Ocean Frontiers for Sustainable Development Manifesto. Additionally, support to initiatives within the All Atlantic strategy and pledge are welcome.
- Proposals should involve at least three Full Member Organisations of EuroMarine (2021 members), from at least two different countries. (Please refer to the provisional 2021 membership list and the corresponding list of General Assembly representatives, both attached to the present call, and do not hesitate to contact secretariateuromarinenetwork [dot] eu for any contact information).
- Activities should be carried out within 2022 and any exemption sought, must be justified in the proposal.
Proposals will be reviewed against criteria of scientific excellence and using specific pools of EuroMarine referees. The EuroMarine Steering Committee will make final decisions.
