The TA scheme is now closed

Via three calls, the eLTER TA scheme offered in-person (physical) Transnational Access (TA) to 18 well-equipped, long-term ecosystem research sites across major European socioeconomic and environmental gradients in 17 countries. The 18 sites were carefully selected so as to be most attractive to prospective users in terms of their natural setting, the available instrumentation and installations, existing long-term data, and the related IT infrastructure. The host organisations of all 18 sites were participants of the eLTER project. The eLTER TA scheme was aimed at:

  • Scientific users, particularly the new generation of ecological and socio-ecological scientists, including students
  • SMEs and larger industries interested in relevant technological developments
  • Other stakeholders interested in data and other services provided by eLTER H2020.
