MagellanPlus Workshop Series ProgrammeThe MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme is co-funded by ECORD and ICDP and designed to support European and Canadian scientists (ECORD) in developing new and innovative science proposals to meet future challenges in earth, life and environmental sciences. For this purpose the MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme funds workshops and/or travel grants that are expected to lead to or foster high-quality and innovative scientific drilling proposals for submission to IODP and ICDP.
|The programme has one call annually with deadline on January 15. Proposals are reviewed by the MagellanPlus Steering Committee (MSC), with the advice of external reviewers where applicable. Proponents will be notified of the outcome within two months following the submission deadline.

Proposals should follow the themes of the IODP and ICDP Science Plans and will include complete and realistic scripts for the proposed workshop. A funded workshop must be executed within 12 months after notification of funding. A typical workshop is expected to take place over 2-4 days, and have 20-35 participants.
The workshop should be located in an ECORD country, close to a convenient air and/or train hub and have relatively low-cost facilities.
Funding/participation: The contribution will not exceed 15,000€ per workshop. Priority is given to ECORD and ICDP member countries.
The participation of young scientists is particularly encouraged.

|Short articles are published in Scientific Drilling and ECORD Newsletter (see summaries below).
Reports of the workshops are available below.
|In addition to workshop funding, the MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme will support the participation of ECORD and ICDP scientists in international IODP and ICDP workshops held in other countries. Proposals for these funds need to be submitted by the organisers of the workshops. The proposals will have to briefly describe the workshop’s aims, agenda and setting. A list of ECORD/ICDP member country scientists to be supported, including their CV and motivations, needs to be supplied. Travel support will not exceed 1,500 € per scientist.
