Through this joint call, EMBRC services are being made available to early career marine researchers to enhance their novel research.

Through this joint EuroMarine and EMBRC call, over €52,000 worth of services have been awarded to 11 successful applicants. The recipients are all early career researchers belonging to EuroMarine member organisations. Their grants cover the costs of their chosen EMBRC research service.

Each of the successful applicants was deemed to have submitted a proposal demonstrating intrinsic scientific value, novelty and relevance to the general scientific strategy of EuroMarine, as outlined in the EuroMarine Ocean Frontier manifesto.

Note for successful applicants: The visits and services awarded under this call will be honoured until July 2022. Please be in touch with the local access officer of the EMBRC partner you have selected as soon as possible to define a date of access to the institute or to perform your project by remote access (delivery of marine organisms or analysed samples, etc.).

Project dates: March 2020 to July 2022
EMBRC role: service provider
