The ASSEMBLE Plus team are launching a new and final call for access to some of Europe’s best marine research facilities and services, once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Researchers from industry and academia are invited to apply for free access to more than 30 international institutions from December 2020 to June 2021. Funded by the European Union, the ASSEMBLE Plus programme supports marine researchers to carry out their own projects using resources not available in their home institutes. The initiative helps participants to enhance their skills, create new collaborations and contribute to scientific understanding.
Since January 2018, the ASSEMBLE Plus Transnational Access (TA) programme has received more than 400 project proposals from European and non-European researchers. Projects have covered a wide range of marine research, including molecular biology, ecology and biochemistry. The many success stories emerging from these projects highlight their value.
Applications are now open for this TA programme call. The award covers access costs for up to 30 days, in addition to travel, accommodation and meal expenses for up to two researchers per project. The deadline to apply for this call is 4 October 2020. This is expected to be the last call for the TA programme and therefore the final opportunity for researchers to benefit.
For more information about the TA programme, previous award holders, eligibility or the application process, please visit assembleplus.eu/access/transnational-access or get in touch with the access officer at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can follow updates on Twitter at @ASSEMBLE_Plus
