The EU-H2020 funded INTERACT (International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic) has opened a call for research groups to apply Trans-national Access and Remote Access. The sites are located across the Arctic and northern alpine and forest areas in Europe, Russia and North-America and they represent a variety of glacier, mountain, tundra, boreal forest, peatland and freshwater ecosystems, providing opportunities for researchers from natural sciences to human dimension. Trans-national 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. Overall, INTERACT provides three different modalities of access: Transnational and Remote Access that are applied through annual calls, and Virtual Access which means free access to data from stations, available at all times through the INTERACT VA single-entry point.
You can find the TA/RA Call information, listing of stations available in the call, descriptions of stations and their facilities, and registration to the INTERACCESS on-line application system from the INTERACT website.
COVID-19 and the ongoing call: we proceed with the call in a regular manner but reserve the possibility to adapt the call, postpone the granted accesses or negotiate a shift from physical access to remote access if the situation and safety regulations so require.
For any additional information, please contact the Trans-national Access project planner Heli Niittynen, heli.niittynen(at)oulu.fi.
