EUROFLEETS Logistics Review Panel

The Logistics Review Panel of the EUROFLEETS “Ocean” and “Regional” Calls is established separately for each call and has a variable composition depending on the research vessels requested. It is convened on request of the EUROFLEETS Consortium during the peer review process following the scientific evaluation and possibly afterwards during the cruise planning period.

 Mandate of the Logistics Review Panel:

  • Recommends on the logistical feasibility of proposals mainly regarding area of operation and timing of cruises during the evaluation process.
  • Recommends on the choice of the research vessel and equipment.


Members of the Logistics Review Panel are:

  • Fleet managers and research vessel operators nominated by EUROFLEETS beneficiaries and appointed by the EUROFLEETS Consortium. The LRP is composed of permanent members from EUROFLEETS beneficiaries and individual research vessel operators managing those ships which have been requested in proposals under evaluation.


The Chair was appointed by the EUROFLEETS Consortium.
