Antarctic Contacts

For general enquiries about funding proposals to NERC which require Antarctic fieldwork support, the Antarctic Funding Coordinator is normally the first point of contact. Based at the British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, the Antarctic Funding Coordinator is supported by the Antarctic Funding Administrator, who also manages the Antarctic Funding Office.

Besides having an involvement with funding applicants at the proposal stage, the Antarctic Funding Office facilitates the integration of funded projects into the annual BAS Antarctic fieldwork programme. It is also responsible for the contents of this website.
