ECORD invites you to celebrate its 20th anniversary
at the occasion of the ECORD-ICDP Townhall meeting
ECORD was created in 2003 by 12 countries to join the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP – 2003-2012) through the co-ordination of the European contribution to this programme. ECORD has played a major role in this programme and initiated the mission-specific platform (MSP) concept (Read more in special issue of ECORD Newsletter #38 »).
ECORD has developed the MSP concept during the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP – 2013-2024). The scientific and operational accomplishments of ECORD in IODP have been prolific and of high quality, and have been recognised by its partners as a crucial contribution to the largest marine geosciences programme in the world.
ECORD is now building a new programme with Japan and other partners based on the MSP concept to start a new phase in scientific ocean drilling history in 2025.
