Fast Track Call for Transnational Access Applications Launched

The first “Fast Track” call for applications for the Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure (RI) Transnational Access (TA) programme opens on 1 October 2021. If you are interested in submitting an application, please consult the call page. You will have until 14:00 CET on 3 November 2021 to submit your application.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the TA facilities and field sites from the Europlanet 2024 RI accumulated a large backlog of TA visits and the next official TA call for applications will thus be delayed to Easter 2022.

In the meantime, “Fast Track” TA calls for applications will be implemented to support “emergency applications” only, such as high impact science, career impact (PhD & post docs contracts) or field work only possible over summer 2022. Applicants will be required to first discuss their implementation plan with the TA host facility before submitting their application.

The TA programme supports all travel and local accommodation costs for European and international researchers to visit and conduct research at 24 accredited laboratory facilities in Europe and 7 planetary analogue field sites. The TA programme can support up to two researchers for each visit and can cover a time-period ranging from a few days to several weeks.

Please note that while the Europlanet 2024 RI TA programme is designed to primarily support planetary science and Earth science, applications from other research disciplines are also eligible and will be considered based on innovation and potential scientific and technological impact.
