INTERACT Transnational Access call open – deadline 18 December 2016
The EU H2020 funded INTERACT (International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic) project opens a call for research groups to apply for Transnational Access to 43 research stations across the Arctic and northern alpine and forest areas in Europe, Russia and North-America. The sites represent a variety of glacier, mountain, tundra, boreal forest, peatland and freshwater ecosystems, providing opportunities for researchers from natural sciences to human dimension.
Transnational Access includes:
- Free access (either physical or remote) for user groups/users to research facilities and field sites, including support for travel and logistic costs
- Free access to information and data in the public domain held at the infrastructures
The call for applications is open until 18th December 2016 for transnational access taking place between March 2017 and April 2018. You can find the TA call information, stations available in the call, descriptions of stations and their facilities, and registration to the INTERACCESS on-line application system from the INTERACT website http://www.eu-interact.org/.
Note that also scientists outside of the EU Member States and Associated states –for example from North-America, Russia and Asian countries- are fully eligible to apply access as main applicants.
