3rd Call of the Transnational Access Programme

The EU-funded eLTER H2020 project operates a Transnational Access programme, providing successful applicants with fund to access European long-term ecosystem research sites. There are nine sites included in the 3rd call.

The deadline for applications is 11th March 2018.

The eLTER TA Call encourages a bottom-up design of research activities to be conducted at one or more of the sites involved in the project. The recommended framework for research themes is ecosystem/biodiversity responses to abiotic drivers, placing emphasis on climate change and nitrogen deposition, thereby considering climate (meteorological) data, soil parameters, soil solution/runoff chemistry, nutrient cycling variables, and information on ground vegetation. However, proposals covering other themes are also encouraged. Furthermore, proposals considering socio-economic research themes are welcomed, since several sites are included in the eLTER TA Scheme that are suitable for socio-ecological research.
