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.
The call for applications is open on 1st September - 13th October, 2017, for projects taking place between March 2018 and April 2019. 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/.
Two on-line webinars, on 11th Sept at 09:00 (CET) and on 12th Sept at 15:00 (CET), will be held to provide information about the ongoing TA Call and answering any questions related to the application process and TA in general.
