The Marine Institute recently launched its 2009 Bright Sparks Competition which offers emerging marine scientists (undergraduate and postgraduate students) the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in undertaking research in Irish waters on board the R.V. Celtic Voyager.
Proposals were invited from students interested in marine research to undertake a research survey on board the R.V. Celtic Voyager during 2009. The successful applicant was offered five days onboard the Celtic Voyager plus up to €5,000 to cover the costs of consumables, logistics etc.
Please see Documents and Templates page for Call Guidelines.
The successful applicant was Ms. Kathryn Hughes, National University of Ireland, Galway for a survey titled "Is the Labadie Bank a hotspot for primary production and higher trophic feeding in the Celtic Shelf? ". Additional information on the successful project is available from firstname.lastname@example.org
This competition is funded through the Marine Research Sub-Programme of the National Development Plan (2007-2013).
