VOTO Support

What is VOTO Support?
Voice of the Ocean supports scientific research projects through a variety of means; infrastructure support for fieldwork, development of methodology, or even support with data management and distribution.

We primarily aim to support initiatives that focus on the Baltic Sea, especially when the project involves our marine infrastructure (vessels and gliders), however, we are open to discussions about more international projects.

One of the biggest obstacles for individual researchers, or small groups, is access to and use of appropriate research infrastructure. We offer bespoke project support, all the way through from developing methodology to data provision, using our existing assets, at no cost to the researcher. We also provide an expert operations team to help develop the safest methodology to create a successful project.
