The Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) Secretariat invites proposals for new working groups to commence activities in late 2021.
Deadline for submission is 16 May 2021.
The guidelines, a template, and word limits are available at http://scor-int.org/work/groups/proposals/, including a PowerPoint presentation explaining the proposal process.
SCOR probably will be able to support two new working groups for a start in late 2021, pending availability of funds and that the proposals pass SCOR review. Each new group will be provided US$45,000 over a 3-4 year period to conduct its work.
Each proposal will be evaluated by national SCOR committees in terms of scientific merit and quality, timeliness, and achievability of the proposed terms of reference.
