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 topical 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. The submission of MSP drilling proposals that consider the possibility of in-kind contributions is encouraged. 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).


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


Call for MagellanPlus proposals – deadline: 15 January 2022
