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.
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.
The call is open on 12th August – 8th October 2019, and it is the last TA/RA call for our current EU-H2020 funding period. The call is targeted for access taking place between April and August 2020. You can find the TA/RA 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.
An on-line webinar will be held on Wed 4th Sept at 13:00-14:00 (CEST) to provide information about the ongoing TA/RA call and for answering any questions related to the application process and TA and RA in general. Join the webinar by clicking this link.
