The participants’ contribution not only represents the main funding source for the research; volunteers represent also a valuable support to the researchers and they are expected to help in all aspects of fieldwork, noting that they are part of a scientific project.
Research is conducted on board the research vessel “Pelagos“, a confortabable 68 ft (21-meter) motorsailer, cruising around the Ligurian Sea between Italy, France and Corsica from May to September, and departing weekly from Sanremo, Italy.
The CSR Project is composed of highly qualified international team members. The fieldwork is usually conducted by an experienced Principal Investigator, one or two researchers and one research assistant and/or intern student.
Life in the field and the daily schedule may vary depending on the sea state, weather conditions and research priorities.
Details about the project, life on board, the week’s schedule, daily activities, lectures and further tips and information can be found in the above downloadable document.
