The Joint Industry Program (JIP) has announced that it will continue funding research on the effects of underwater noise on marine animals from 2010 through 2012.   The program, now worth up to $35M, funded 62 projects from 2006 through 2008 (see our website, www.soundandmarinelife.org for details).   In 2009 the economic downturn and its effects on future research priorities caused the JIP to suspend the funding of new projects for that year only.   This suspension did not affect several previously-funded projects that are still ongoing.   The program officially resumed on January 1, 2010 with a new suite of partner companies and external advisors, a changed structure, and some new policies.   The JIP web site will soon be updated to reflect these changes.   No final decision has been reached on the research priorities for 2010 and beyond.   However, future research will likely be somewhat less diverse and more focused on immediate industry problems than in the past.   No Requests for Proposals will be released until after March 2010.   As before, all inquiries about the program should be addressed to info at ogp.org.uk , and not to Roger Gentry, former Program Manager and now Special Advisor to the JIP ( roger.gentry at comcast.net ), who posted this message.
