  • 2016 Call for SCOR Working Group Proposals
    SCOR seeks proposals for new working groups with novel, global scale research ideas from any field of marine science. Usually from one to three proposals are funded each year. SCOR promotes science that comes from the ocean science community. The working groups are an important vehicle to draw attention to important ocean science issues identified by the global community of ocean scientists.
    Guidelines for proposals are available at: http://www.scor-int.org/WG_Proposal_Instructions.docx
    Submission deadline: 17 April 2016
  • Apply NOW for the IMBER ClimEco5 summer school 
    ClimEco5 banner
    This multidisciplinary summer school is aimed at students and early career researchers interested in modelling and interpreting change in marine systems, and finding out about practical ways of dealing with the challenges arising from working across social and natural science disciplines.
    Lectures will deal with indicators, models, analysis, and communicating scientific findings, and engaging with decision- and policy-makers. During the daily practical sessions you will work with different modelling and statistical techniques and packages, and also learn tips and strategies to engage more effectively with policy and decision-makers.
    More information is available on the summer school website at:
    http://www.imber.info/index.php/Early-Career/IMBER-Summer-Schools/ClimEco5-August-2016-Natal-Brazil or contact us at imber@imr.no
