Applications for Supplementary MNF Granted Voyages

A call for Supplementary applications to fill unused capacity in the 2019-20 schedule is now open. 

In addition to being ranked against the MNF assessment criteria of scientific/technical excellence, national benefit and applicant’s ability, Supplementary applications are assessed for logistical integration with the Primary voyage (if applicable) and training and educational criteria. Once assessed, successful Supplementary applicants are offered berths on a MNF Granted Research or Transit voyage.
