Interested in applying Trans-National Access or Remote Access to one of the 53 INTERACT stations in the ArcticDefinitions of the Arctic vary according to environmental, geographical, political, cultural and scientific perspectives. Some scientists define the Arctic as areas having a high latitude, long winters, short, cool summers,... More and northern alpine and forest areas?

Join the webinar on Tue 15th September at 10:00-11:00 (CEST, +1UTC) to learn more about the ongoing TA/RA Call that is open until 15th October for access taking place in s/s 2021 and a/w 2021-22. Link to join the webinar

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)
