Joint experiments and platforms & facilities
Mr James Barry, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, USA
Promote and facilitate international collaboration and joint experiments, in particular efforts focusing on key fisheries or ecosystems.
- Support of scientific visits and encourage collaboration
The OA-ICC intends to support a limited number of researchers to travel to international research facilities and early-career scientists for short-term visits to pre-defined host laboratories. More information here.
- Information sharing
Facilitate collaboration through the identification of opportunities and mapping of on-going experiments. Opportunities and useful resources will be posted below.
Joint platforms & facilities

Mr Ulf Riebesell, GEOMAR | Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Germany
Encourage and support international cooperation by providing access to joint research platforms and large-scale facilities.
Support of scientists to use platforms and facilities
Long-term in situ observations and high-quality experiments at the community and ecosystem level require community resources and facilities which are typically not available to individual research groups. Other important research activities requiring joint efforts of the scientific community are inter-comparison studies and experimental and observational approaches combining multiple disciplines. The OA-ICC intends to support a limited number of researchers to travel to defined platforms and facilities. More information will become available shortly.
