Scrips Institution of Oceanography University of California San Diego (SIO-UCSD), San Diego, US
Outgoing phase institution
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography mission is to seek, teach, and communicate scientific understanding of the oceans, atmosphere, Earth, and other planets for the benefit of society and the environment. Since its founding in 1903, the institution has expanded its scope to include studies of the physics, chemistry, geology, biology, and climate of the Earth. Hundreds of research programs are underway today in a wide range of scientific areas on every continent and in every ocean. The Geosciences Research Division is one of the research sections of Scripps with interests that cover a wide variety of topics in the atmospheric, marine and solid Earth sciences, and in many cases, these topics are cross-disciplinary. Research activities encompass modeling studies, laboratory experiments, and field-based expeditions, including ship-time.

Institute of Marine Sciences – Spanish National Research Council (ICM-CSIC), Barcelona, Spain
Return phase institution
The Institute of Marine Sciences is one of the 71 institutes or centres that belong to the Spanish National Research Council. The ICM is entirely devoted to the study of oceans and seas and is the largest marine research center in Spain and one of the most important in the Mediterranean region. The ICM’s long experience and a team of specialists in different fields of oceanographic research (physics, chemistry, geology and biology) give the institute a broad vision of the marine ecosystem, and the ability to assess changes and human impacts on the environment and seek appropriate solutions. The ICM researchers have been involved in national and international projects and in oceanographic surveys in almost all the seas and oceans of the world. The ICM publishes Scientia Marina, the only scientific journal dedicated to oceanography that is published in Spain. As public institutions, the ICM is also committed to communicating and disseminating the knowledge acquired through their activities.
