GCRF UK Funding call: Growing research capability to meet the challenges faced by developing countries

The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is today launching a  call for applications for strategic programmes designed to grow research capability to address the challenges faced by developing countries. The aims of the call are to enhance existing and to build new collaborations between UK researchers and researchers in developing countries, and to increase the engagement of the UK research base with the many actors and agencies involved in responding to the needs of the world’s poorest populations.

Final chance for comment of the oceanographic community: Implementation plan for NASA-funded “EXport Processes in the Ocean from RemoTe Sensing” (EXPORTS)

The goal of the “EXport Processes in the Ocean from RemoTe Sensing” (EXPORTS) field campaign is to develop a predictive understanding of the export and fate of net primary production and its implications for the ocean’s carbon cycle. EXPORTS builds upon decades of NASA-supported research assessing global NPP. The EXPORTS Science Plan has already been thoroughly vetted by the community. 

NASA formed a Science Definition Team (SDT) to draft an Implementation Plan for EXPORTS. A draft of that plan is now available for comment.
