Applying for sea time

Access to sea time on RV Investigator is available to Australian researchers and their international collaborators via Granted Voyages and User Funded Voyages.

MNF Granted Voyages

MNF Granted Voyages are funded by the Australian Government and each annual application round begins two years in advance of the voyage schedule. The annual application cycle begins with Primary applications. Opportunities to fill any unused capacity in the voyage schedule are then advertised through Supplementary applications and Piggyback opportunities.

User Funded Voyages

Proposals for User Funded Voyages are open year round for both research organisations and their collaborators, and charters.
