Sweden is a member of the
International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) and
the European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD), which joined the Intregrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP#1) in 2003.
In October 2013, ECORD joined the International Ocean Discovery Program - Exploring the Earth under the sea (IODP#2).
