"OA-ICC [...] provided for me the opportunity to present my research work to the international ocean research community, to meet experts and colleagues from all over the world and discuss with them about my results, share ideas and build a strong network with peers for future scientific collaborations."

Joint platforms and facilities

Mesocosms developed by GEOMAR and used during a field campaign of the European project EPOCA in summer 2010 (c) N. Cobbing

Focal point:
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.

Our approach

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.
