Our Innovation Fund supports research that is a strategic priority for the MSC, and is part of our Ocean Stewardship Fund.
The Innovation Fund is not open for applications in 2023/24.
All priority research is being addressed through other funding strands within the Ocean Stewardship Fund.
In 2021, the MSC awarded £100,000 through the Ocean Stewardship Fund to support global efforts to identify and improve best practice approaches for at-sea monitoring, which will ensure that fishery observers around the world can carry out their work safely.
Projects awarded include:
- Creating a bespoke fisheries communications platform for observers to safely communicate with home bases
