AssemblePlus 7th call open until April 24, 2020!

The European project ASSEMBLE Plus offers Transnational Access, where researchers and PhD students can apply for support to conduct research at one of more than 30 marine stations distributed over 16 countries, including Archipelago Research Institute,  Tvärminne Zoological Station, and Husö biologiska station in Finland!

This call gives the opportunity to gain access to a wide array of technologies and services in the fields of marine science. Researchers from academia and industry can apply for onsite and remote access. Finnish researchers cannot apply for access to the Finnish stations, but are encouraged to apply for access to some of the other partner institutions. This is also a great opportunity to invite your international colleagues to come and conduct research in Finland! The TA funding covers travel, accommodation, and free-of-charge access to labs, research services, and standard disposables (but not researcher’s salaries), for up to 30 days each for up to two researchers per project.

The next deadline for applications for Transnational Access is 24th April 2020. The 7th call is open for projects to be performed (onsite access) from August 2020 until January 2021.

This is expected to be the last call for the TA programme and therefore the final opportunity for researchers to benefit from funding within the scheme.
