INP is a Dutch initiative aimed at promoting co-operation between different national and international North Sea research programmes. There have been two workshops, the first at Texel on the 6th/8th June 1990 and the second at The Hague on the 14th/15th May 1992. During the workshops scientists from different countries present their institutes future research plans, co-ordinating projects where possible, and reviewing the need for new research proposals. The results of the workshop are published in Workshop Reports. The Dutch intention is to seek NSTF sponsorship for INP. INP is not one homogenous programme but a means of alerting scientists involved in North Sea Research to work being carried out by other Institutes. A strong theme which developed during the 1992 Workshop was the advantages to be gained from co-ordinating sea going research either by, for example, ships from different Institutes visiting the same reference monitoring point or from scientists from a different Institute joining another institutes research cruise. Nine countries are participating in the INP. Within the UK the Plymouth Marine Laboratory, the Natural History Museum, the University of Bristol (Department of Botany) and the University of Wales (Bangor School of Ocean Sciences) were early contributors to the programme. Since then other UK institutions (notably MAFF) have become involved.
