Call for proposals 2022

We invite applications for the programme Marine research in the North Atlantic Ocean. This is the second of two calls in a programme funded by the Danish Government to encourage collaborative research between Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Denmark.

We call for proposals focused on marine processes related, but not limited, to the Greenland-Iceland-Faroe-Scotland Ridge (hereafter called “the Ridge”).

The Ridge is an important geographical boundary between the North Atlantic Ocean and the subarctic seas. 

The Ridge is a region of large scientific complexity in most marine disciplines, and a unifying theme for the countries inhabiting it. Therefore, we seek collaborative and interdisciplinary project proposals between Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Denmark.

A successful project is dedicated to marine disciplines, such as physical, chemical or biological oceanography, including themes such as ocean acidification and climate change, marine ecosystems or biodiversity. We encourage projects that complement the projects already funded from this programme, please see the list here

For early career researchers (including PhD and PostDoc), we strongly recommend research stays in at least two of the three countries.

The total budget for this call is 7.8 million DKK.

The maximum amount of funding available per project is 3.9 million DKK. The aim is to fund two to three projects.
