Supervisors for INSPIRE projects are academic staff from:
- University of Southampton departments of Ocean and Earth Science, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Geography and Environmental Science, Archaeology and Physics & Astronomy.
- National Oceanography Centre.
- British Antarctic Survey.
- Marine Biological Association.
- Natural History Museum.
Researchers from Collaborative Partner institutions can also be co-supervisors.
The researchers involved span all three themes of INSPIRE: (1) oceans and climate, (2) the dynamic Earth, and (3) interaction of organisms with the global environment.
