NERC Integrated Ocean Drilling Programme

(8 March 2006)

The Natural Environment Research Council solicits proposals for research grants to support UK membership in the integrated ocean drilling programme. This scheme will enable UK scientists to participate in and obtain material from drilling legs, and capitalise on IODP drilling results and UK technologies, allowing them to benefit from technological advances in deep sea drilling. Research grants will be awarded on the basis of a proportion of 80 per cent of the full economic cost .
