EUROFLEETS Call "Ocean" and "Regional 1" Results

Here you can find the results of the EUROFLEETS "Ocean" and "Regional1" Call launched on 5th March 2010.

A total of 40 full proposals were submitted to the EUROFLEETS "Ocean" and "Regional 1" call 2010, of which 2 applications were rejected, since they did not meet the eligibility criteria in terms of requested proposal structure.

 

Of the 38 eligible proposals, 23 requested ship-time on an Ocean/ Global class vessel (a total of 226 days) and 15 proposals were dedicated towards a Regional class vessel (a total of 138 days). 

 

Within the 23 proposals requesting ship-time on one of the Global/Ocean class research vessels18 projects passed the scientific evaluation, of which a total of 6 projects were selected for funding, representing 77 days of funded ship-time. 

 

Within the 15 proposals requesting ship-time on one of the Regional class research vessels, only 7 projects passed the scientific evaluation, of which 6 proposals were selected for funding, representing 41,5 days of funded ship-time (*).

 

 

 

Thus within the first EUROFLEETS calls 12 highly ranked projects upon 38 received eligible proposals (corresponding to a 32% "success rate") will get access to 118,5 days at sea fully funded by the EC.
