Continental margins are areas of intense exploration interest at the present day, both in NW Europe and across the world. Investigation of the processes involved in shaping margin geology, from crustal geometry to sub-seismic scale reservoir configuration, have contributed to the greater understanding of geological structure in areas of transition from continental crust to oceanic crust. The Ocean Margin LINK Programme is a research programme co-funded by NERC and industry focusing on the geological evolution of ocean margins. The LINK scheme is the Government’s principal mechanism for promoting partnership in research between industry and the academia. The first small grants were allocated in 2000, since which time 14 full projects along with 9 stand-alone studentships have been funded by the Programme, which will end in late 2006. On 16th November 2004 a Workshop was held at DTI in London, giving proponents of projects a chance to summarise research progress and to discuss future collaborations and themes for research.
