Abed El Rahman HASSOUN (Lebanon), SOLAS Summer School 2013

"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 experiments and platforms & facilities

Joint experiments

Example of a joint experiment in the framework of the European project MedSeA (c) Francis Louis

Focal point:
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.

Our approach

  • 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

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.
