The Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) is launching “Pier-2-Peer”, the new GOA-ON mentorship program, to match senior scientists with ocean acidification expertise with new GOA-ON members to support the development of OA monitoring (chemical to biological) in emerging regions. In the future, GOA-ON leadership hopes to secure financial support for travel and other training activities for mentors and mentees participating in GOA-ON’s Pier-2-Peer mentoring program.
As a global organization, GOA-ON relies on international collaboration to share data and understand the global ecological impacts of ocean acidification and is committed to promoting diversity across discipline, countries, socioeconomic status, gender and ethnicity. This year, the 3rd GOA-ON Science Workshop (8-10 May 2016) will have participation from over 40 countries and many new members from emerging regions are expected to attend.
During the Workshop you will have the opportunity to sign-up for the mentorship program in person. However, you do not need to participate in the Workshop to become part of the program. You can also sign-up at any time by following the links to questionnaires below and completing the respective registration form.
We look forward to your active participation in the program.
