Welcome to the online submission system for cruise proposals. Please register to the system first. Login details will be sent by e-mail to you. Please note that you have to register newly for each call for proposals. When you are applying for several proposals, you have to register with a new login each time. When you are re-submitting your revised proposal, you have to register with a new login as well.
After you received the login details, you can log-in on the subpage "proponent login". To submit a proposal to the system, you must fill in all elements within the submission system, including your profile (coordinator or project partner), project data, and a sketch of activities of the planned expedition. More detailed instructions on compiling research cruise proposals are provided in the guideline for ‘Cruise Proposal Preparation Instructions', Revision 1.0 (published July 2020), downloadable at the 'German Research Vessels Portal'. A 'factsheet' will be generated from all submitted information, documents, texts, and figures. The project coordinator can control all of the included elements. This factsheet is an integral part of the proposal and will be taken into account for the evaluation.
Cruise proposals may only be submitted via this portal. Other forms of submission will not be accepted.
