Second Transnational Access Call Launched by Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure

Call for Applications for Free Access to Laboratories and Field Sites

The second call for applications for the Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure (RI) Transnational Access (TA) programme has been launched. If you are interested in submitting an application, please consult the call page. You will have until 14:00 CET on 6 January 2021 to submit your application.

A virtual workshop will be organised on 3 December, from 10:00 to 13:00 CET, to help applicants to submit high quality proposals. Participants will have the chance to talk to the TA programme organisers, learn about the full procedure, be given some useful tips and hear about successful projects. Participation is free – please register here.

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 5 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.

In addition, from this call on, the Korea Basic Science Institute (KBSI) will be offering access to 11 facilities in South Korea. KBSI will be able to cover the cost of 8 to 10 projects from European scientists each year.

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.

Depending on the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, the time period during which the TA visits can be undertaken may be extended to the end of 2022.
