Information - TM8 Future needs in scientific drilling
The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) and the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) have a complementary approach in addressing key questions in Earth Sciences.
The IODP-ICDP Town Hall Meeting aims at gathering the European communities interested in scientific drilling to discuss ideas and to develop future plans. The outstanding success in operations and in several science topics needs to be extended to upcoming research fields such as microbiology and others. Moreover fruitful co-operations with other scientific initiatives such as long-term monitoring have to be established. The marine, polar and terrestrial communities must continue to join forces to enhance visibility and effectiveness. This will be essential to develop convincing strategies to secure long-term funding in these drilling programs.
All interested parties are welcome to this Town Hall Meeting to share views and perspectives.
