Making Waves: The Oceanic Opportunity You Didn't Know You Needed

Ahoy, ocean enthusiasts and budding researchers! Ever dreamt of diving deep into the mysteries of the ocean while also getting a chance to travel and network? Well, dream no more. The "Our Shared Ocean Mobility and Travel Grants 2023" is here to make those dreams a reality.

Dive into the Details

Hosted by the bigwigs at The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Marine Institute (MI), this program is all about supporting research, fostering knowledge exchange, and building capacity. And guess what? They're pouring a whopping €3.8 million into it. Talk about making it rain... or should we say, making waves?

What's the Catch?

No, you don't have to be Aquaman or have a PhD in Oceanography. But there's a slight catch. This program is primarily aimed at the Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Think Caribbean, Pacific, and the exotic-sounding AIMS regions. So, if you're from these areas, you're in luck!

Show Me the Money

Depending on what floats your boat, there are different grant categories:

  • Research conferences and workshops: Get between €500 and €2000.
  • Training courses: Again, between €500 and €2000.
  • Research visits: Bag up to €6000.

Mark Your Calendars

There are multiple deadlines, so no excuses for missing out. From March to November 2023, there's a date for everyone. And if you're eyeing the Gulf Caribbean Fisheries Institute Annual Conference in Nassau this November, there's a special deadline just for you.

Why Should You Dive In?

Apart from the obvious perks (hello, money and travel!), this is a golden opportunity to delve into areas like the sustainable blue economy, oceanic research, and more. Plus, it's a fantastic way to network, learn, and contribute to the vast world of oceanic knowledge.

A Little About the Big Fish

The Department of Foreign Affairs and the Marine Institute aren't just any organizations. They're heavyweights in the world of research and development. With a track record of supporting groundbreaking initiatives, they're the real deal.

Remember, opportunities like these don't come often. So, whether you're an ocean enthusiast, a researcher, or someone looking to make a splash in the world of marine studies, this is your chance. Dive in!
