The ECORD/ICDP MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme aims to foster the development of new IODP/ICDP drilling projects, and invites scientists from ECORD/ICDP member countries to propose workshops for the elaboration of compelling drilling proposals.

MagellanPlus welcomes proposals for workshops aimed at generating MSP drilling proposals, either as stand-alone projects or as part of land-to-sea transects that integrate marine and continental coring. Scientific themes must be aligned with the Strategic Objectives defined in the 2050 Science Framework, i.e.:

– Earth’s Climate System;

– Feedbacks in the Earth System;

– Tipping Points in Earth’s History;

– Global Cycles of Energy and Matter;

– Natural Hazards Impacting Society;

– The Oceanic Life Cycle of Tectonic Plates;

– Habitability and Life on Earth (e.g., deep biosphere).

Workshops may be either focused on specific scientific ideas and targets or be designed to explore a range of potential ideas related to the Strategic Objectives listed above.

The contribution of the MagellanPlus Workshop Series will not exceed 15,000 € per workshop.

Call for MagellanPlus proposals – deadline: 15 May 2023
