Shipboard training

Ocean Training Partnership

The Ocean Training Partnership (OTP) is an international alliance of marine science organisations that coordinates shipboard training experiences.

Using funding from the Nippon Foundation, this initiative, which is led by POGO in collaboration with the Strategic Marine Alliance for Research and Training (SMART) and the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), provides grants to support training cruises, and fellowships for early-career scientists in developing countries.

The current partners are now inviting institutions with spare capacity on research vessels, or Principal Investigators with spare berths on a planned research cruise, to get involved with this capacity-building project.
