Organizers of the European Union-Horizon 2020 -funded International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic III (INTERACTIII) announce the first call for research groups to apply for Trans-national Access (TA) to 10 new research stations offering TA in INTERACT III.

The stations included in the call are located in Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Russia, Svalbard, and USA. The sites represent a variety of ecosystems, providing opportunities for researchers from natural sciences to human dimension. 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 (VA) which means free access to data from stations, available at all times through the INTERACT VA single-entry point.
