The Jerico Research Infrastructure (www.jerico-ri.eu/) wishes to announce that the first of 3 Transnational Access funding calls to support a wide range of marine researchers by giving free of charge access to high-quality infrastructures and support services at unique multi-disciplinary marine coastal sites will be closing on November 16th 2020 @5pm CET
Successful applicants will be able to carry out first-class experiments on multi-disciplinary, multi-platform coastal observing systems thus maximising impacts for science, environmental managers, industries and other relevant stakeholders.
Users accessing the Infrastructure will not only get access to the best available equipment and facilities for their needs, but also the expert personnel. Having access to this detailed knowledge at each of the Facilities adds value for external users of the Infrastructure, improving research outputs and scientific excellence.
Between June 2020 and January 2024 will offer more than 8800 days of Transnational Access (TA) to more than 40 different integrated marine coastal observation facilities located at 21 Jerico RI partners throughout Europe. Detailed information about each Jerico RI facility, technical design and available resources etc. can be found here – ( https://www.jerico-ri.eu/ta/jerico-facilities-in-ta/)
To determine the capabilities and service offerings of each facility we strongly encourage all TA applicants to contact the respective facility providers – as soon as possible in the about usage of facilities and cooperation at the infrastructures. Please ensure that the objectives and aims of the call are fully addressed before submitting a proposal for Transnational Access. The TA application form and Guidelines can be found online https://www.jerico-ri.eu/ta/call-program/first-call/.
This is a unique opportunity for scientists and engineers to avail of high-quality, interlinked instrumented infrastructures operating in coastal and shelf-sea areas for carrying out research and/or testing activities.
