ECORD Industry Liaison Panel


The ECORD Industry Liaison Panel (ECORD ILP) acts as a link between academia and industry forging and fostering mutually-beneficial relationships. The panel comprises representatives from interested industries and service companies (in Europe and wider international), academia and research institutes and ECORD entities.

The ECORD ILP meets once a year >> minutes of the meetings.

:: ECORD ILP Tasks and Interactions

  • providing support and offering guidance to the academic community for meeting industrial and related scientific objectives;
  • identifying topics of interest to the industrial community and suggesting others that might be initiated by industrial members and developed jointly with academics;
  • facilitating of mutual communication and cooperative scientific activities between IODP and related industries, (i.e. petroleum, mining, technology-development and innovation, engineering) with the aim of benefiting ocean drilling science and technology;
  • maximising economic benefits from sharing resources, such as manpower, drilling of sites, development of joint drilling and sampling technologies, core and data analyses, and improved downhole measurement and observatory capabilities.

:: ECORD at 3P Arctic Conferences

To foster links between industry and academia and to promote IODP proposals in the Arctic area, the ECORD ILP in collaboration with ESO took part as an exhibitor at the Polar Petroleum Potential Conferences - 3P Arctic, in 2013 in Stavanger (Norway) and in 2011 in Halifax (Canada).
A brochure entitled "Scientific Drilling in the Arctic Ocean" designed by Dayton Dove (UK IODP-BGS) was released in 2011 to stimulate industry interest in scientific drilling in the Arctic.
