International teams of scientists are invited to submit project proposals to ICDP for financial and logistical support of drilling operations. ICDP provides funding for high-priority projects which critically need drilling as a tool. After more than 15 years of operations, 28 drilling projects on five continents have been completed and several others are planned.
Operational support, instrument provision, training.
Funding for scientific drilling projects proposed by scientists from ICDP member countries (Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, PR China, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, U.S.A., United Kingdom).
