The European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD) is sponsoring merit-based awards for outstanding young scientists to conduct innovative research related to the International Ocean Discovery Program. The research may be directed toward the objectives of upcoming or past DSDP/ODP/IODP expeditions, using core materials and/or data. The ECORD Research Grants will cover travel and lab expenses or other approved costs related to the study. Studies should be conducted in a laboratory/institution other than the applicant’s home institution, involving mobility and promoting new collaborations and/or the acquisition of new scientific expertise. Grant budgets must not exceed 3000 €. Applicants should be enrolled in either a PhD or “early-career”, post-doctoral research programme at any institution from an ECORD country.
