Network Funds of DOME

Beyond the specific research that is budgeted in the individual SPP projects,  the coordination office has the ability to react to unforeseen collaborations or scientific opportunities that may lead to major advances. We support unforeseen opportunities such as rapid access to analytical or experimental facilities, e.g. synchrotron radiation beamtime, or opportunities that arise in field research, e.g. participation in collaborative studies, access to new drill cores or underground exposures, etc.

Furthermore, central funds are available for supporting access of young scientists within the SPP to “hands-on” courses on analytical or experimental techniques provided by scientific societies, universities or research centres. Finally, the committee may provide funds to support mentoring activities, either from local providers or cross-national mentoring tandems between partners of the SPP.

These discretionary funds administered by the DOME committee are made available on an ad-hoc basis upon request by SPP participants. The proposals will be evaluated on a short timeframe basis.  To apply, please fill out this form and write a mail to
