Contributed by: Thule Institute, University of Oulu/INTERACT

The EU H2020-funded INTERACT (International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic) opens a call for research groups to apply for Transnational Access to 43 research stations across the Arctic and northern alpine and forest areas in Europe, Russia and North America.
INTERACT Transnational Access Call is open for projects taking place between March 2019 and April 2020
The sites available for access in the call represent a variety of glacier, mountain, tundra, boreal forest, peatland and freshwater 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 which means free access to data from stations, available at all times through the INTERACT VA single-entry point.

The call for Transnational and Remote Access applications is open from 13th August to 12th October, 2018, for projects taking place between March 2019 and April 2020. You can find the TA/RA call information, stations available in the call, descriptions of stations and their facilities, and registration to the INTERACCESS online application system from the INTERACT website at

An online webinar will be held on 11th September at 15:00 (CEST) to provide information about the ongoing TA/RA call and for answering any questions related to the application process and TA and RA in general. A link to join the webinar, and a webinar recording to follow, will be provided on the TA/RA call information page at
