TA/RA: First Call for Proposals

Monday, November 2, 2020

Are you a scientist working in the areas of biodiversity, biogeochemistry, hydrology or socio-ecological research? Do you want to study the natural environment at one of our well-equipped research sites?
eLTER PLUS project provides opportunities to perform research focussed on our LTsER Montado platform.
Transnational Access (TA) - this option enables in-person visits (e.g. to collect and analyse data) to one or more LTER sites/LTSER platforms involved in the scheme.
Remote Access (RA) – enables the execution of activities at sites by the local teams, which are defined by “remote users” (e.g. measurements, data collection, and experiments according to instructions and protocols provided by the remote users).
eLTER PLUS encourages users to combine TA- and RA-related project work where they can test hands-on procedures and refine the protocol at one site, and then have the same protocol performed at other sites remotely.
Please consider that due to possible COVID-related travel restrictions, at present, a focus on RA is recommended.
