ICDP provides a strategy for successful science delivery by funding workshops and co-funding drilling operations of different scales world-wide. Therefore, different proposal types with specific requirements at certain stages apply.
ICDP invites Earth scientists to submit Preliminary Proposals, Workshop Proposals and Full Proposals in which drilling is required to achieve critical research goals. This call is open to investigators from ICDP member countries as well as low-income countries and from countries considering membership in ICDP. ICDP also invites proposals in cooperation with the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), in which coordinated drilling on land and at sea (L2S) is required.
