Support is provided to initiatives proposed by POGO members, which aim to identify and fill gaps in global ocean observation. This call is open to the POGO member institutes, to advance ocean observations while at the same time strengthen the ties of the POGO network.
Members can apply for funding for Projects, Working Groups and/or Training Initiatives which are dedicated to specific priority areas directly relevant to POGO’s core mission, i.e. sustained, long-term ocean observing systems and shared use of infrastructure, data and information. Working Groups should also use other sources of funding where possible and should have a short, pre-determined life-span (e.g. 3 years). Working Groups provide a platform for the members to discuss and produce recommendations for addressing key issues. They may also focus on solutions for improving ocean observations, such as new technologies, novel partnerships and funding sources, and improving data access and visualisation. Proposals for joint Working Groups between POGO and its partner organisations are also welcome.
POGO Task Forces are established to address priorities identified by POGO members during the POGO annual meeting.
