COVID-19 INFORMATION for Expedition Participants
While COVID restrictions remain in force UK IODP is able to provide assistance to cover extra costs incurred as a result.
During this time expeditions are likely to run with reduced scientist numbers onboard and with extended Onshore Science Parties. Onshore Science Party participants who were part of the original Shipboard Science Party will still be eligible to apply for moratorium grant funding.
All participants will need to ensure their institutional insurance covers travel to and from the ship and or science party location, any pre-boarding testing processes and medical cover.
Please contact NERC (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information regarding additional support available and eligibility prior to submitting a grant application.
