Workshops are often used to develop new drilling proposals that can optimize possible science through use of IODP’s platforms or to synthesize research results. IODP does not have a central funding source for workshops. Proponents can contact their PMO, funding agencies, and other sources for more information on their funding opportunities, including USSSP's IODP Workshop Program and the MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme.
