The terms of EuroMarine 2017 call for proposals were specified by the Steering Committee (SC) during its 9 Feb. 2017 meeting. These terms are outlined below, in advance of the actual launch of the call, with the purpose of letting scientists at EuroMarine member organisations start preparing applications and liaise with potential EuroMarine partners.
In 2017, two distinct calls will be organised. The budget of the calls will be determined by the SC at a later stage based on EuroMarine final 2017 resources.
Call for proposals for FWS and WG
The eligible categories of activities that will be funded in 2017 are limited to:
- Foresight Workshops ('horizon scanning', FWS) – maximum funding: 7,500 €
- EuroMarine Working Groups (WG) addressing strategic services or issues – maximum funding: 5,000 €
To be eligible, scientific proposals should address EuroMarine priorities, as defined in the 2015 summary text on EuroMarine scientific strategy.
Proposals should involve at least three 2017 Full (paying) Member Organisations of EuroMarine, from at least two different countries. (Please refer to the provisional 2017 membership list and the corresponding list of General Assemblty representative, both attached to the present announcement, and do not hesitate to contact secretariateuromarinenetwork [dot] eu for any contact information).
Activities should preferably be carried out in 2018 and any exemption should be justified in the proposal.
The two sets of proposals corresponding to the above two categories will be reviewed separately using specific criteria and specific pools of EuroMarine referees. The EuroMarine Steering Committee will make final decisions.
Pending the 2017 call launch, please refer for further information to the previous (2016) call webpage (notably to the text of the call and the terms and conditions of funding).

Call for applications for individual fellowships to participate in advanced courses
In 2017, instead of directly funding Capacity Building and Training activities, EuroMarine will grant individual fellowships to let EuroMarine PhD students and scholars in their first post-doctoral position attend an advanced course of their choice.
- Individual fellowships (500 €; PhD students and scholars in their first post-doctorate)
Applicants must either belong to a EuroMarine Full Member Organisation or to one of EuroMarine Permanent Invited Member Organisations in a developing country (please refer to the attached membership list).
The courses targeted by the applicants must take place between 1st June and 29th September 2017. (Depending on the outcome of the call and final EuroMarine 2017 resources, a second round of fellowships might be offered around August to cover courses to be held between Oct. 2017 and Feb. 2018.)
Funding will be subject to official acceptance onto the course, and will be granted by EuroMarine through AquaTT.
- 11th April: Publication of the call
