The Canadian Consortium for Ocean Drilling (CCOD) is a consortium composed of Canadian universities and government agencies formed to facilitate Canada's participation in IODP.
The CCOD has the following objectives:
- Advocate and encourage Canadian participation in IODP and ECORD
- Develop proposals and applications for IODP funding
- Help the community to develop proposals and applications for IODP expeditions
- Represent the Canadian community on IODP and ECORD committees and panels
- Provide advice and guidance to the IODP-Canada Secretariat concerning the management of Canada's participation in IODP
- Disseminate IODP and ECORD information to the Canadian community and public
- Organize Canadian outreach and training activities, such as summer schools, lecture tours, and workshops
The CCOD directly supports the operational costs associated with IODP participation and planning for long-term, stable funding for Canadian IODP membership through an annual membership fee. Membership in the CCOD is open to all Canadian universities, government agencies and industry groups with a commitment to Canada's participation in the IODP.
