Antarctic Concordia Base is calling for ideas
Duration of the experiments should be up to two years; longer projects must be resubmitted after this period. Multidisciplinary research is welcome.
Interested scientists are asked to send Letters of Intent before 4 November; a proposal workshop will be held at ESTEC in the Netherlands on 21 November.
The final proposals are due on 9 January 2012.
Depending on their complexity, some proposals may be implemented for the 2013 winter season, implying shipping of equipment and crew training in autumn 2012. The other selected projects will begin in the following seasons.
