Marine Facilities Planning

Welcome to
Marine Facilities Planning

This website allows Scientists to apply to use marine facilities from the NERC, NIOZ, GEOMAR, CSIC, IMR, GU and SYKE.

The Natural Environment Research Council is the UK's largest funder of independent environmental science, training and innovation, delivered through universities and research centres.
The National Marine Facilities at NIOZ Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research facilitate access to research vessels and seagoing equipment for the marine science community in the Netherlands.
GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel is a foundation under public law jointly funded by the federal government (90 %) and state of Schleswig Holstein (10 %).
The institute investigates the chemical, physical, biological and geological processes of the seafloor, oceans and ocean margins and their interactions with the atmosphere. GEOMAR is member of the Helmholtz Association.
The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) is the largest public institution in Spain dedicated to research and one of the most renowned of the European Research Area (ERA). It is ascribed to the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities through the General Secretariat of Scientific Policy Coordination.
SYKE is a multidisciplinary research and expert institute. Our most important task is to solve society's most burning questions that have an impact on the environment.
The environment is our shared responsibility.

We are building a sustainable society. We provide necessary information, multidisciplinary expertise and expert services for public and private decision-making
The Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) is a centre for marine and coastal research. As a partner in various projects and networks it promotes and supports the international image of Flemish marine scientific research and international marine education
The Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources is the central geoscientific authority providing advice to the German Federal Government in all geo-relevant questions. It is subordinate to the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
The University of Gothenburg is a multidisciplinary university that dates back to 1891. We consist of eight faculties and 38 departments. We also have a large number of research and centres of expertise that span across several academic disciplines. These disciplines serve as a meeting point for students, researchers and representatives from the commercial, industrial, and public sectors.
Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale - OGS:
To understand Ocean processes and predict their changes by collecting, analyzing, and interpreting oceanographic, geophysical, and seismological data, sharing knowledge and information with Society and improving awareness
We provide scientific and technical advice to the government to inform policy and support the sustainable development of Ireland's marine resources.
SLU is a leading international university providing research, education and environmental assessment within the sciences for sustainable life.
When you look beneath the ocean’s surface, you will find a wonderful world full of life. A vibrant environment that lays the very foundation for everything on our planet. Our mission is to tell that story. We conduct, support, and promote science and communication regarding the sea and its dynamic processes. With a holistic approach, we explore the interaction between humans and the sea. Historically, at present, and in the future.
The Institute of Marine Research (IMR) is one of the biggest marine research institutes in Europe, with about 1,100 employees. Our main activities are research, advisory work and monitoring.
