In these particular cases, the researchers must demonstrate the merit of these memberships and detail the type of participation and time that will be devoted to carrying out the activities with each group.

Applications are evaluated on a biannual basis in the months of May and November. The decision is communicated to the applicant by the scientific coordinator of CEN shortly after the meeting.
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 • Free access to information and data in the public domain held at the infrastructures.
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.
