Opportunity for open access to SIRTA!

Apply for free transnational access

The ATMO ACCESS project has officially started. It is a great opportunity to benefit from open Transnational access to the SIRTA Atmospheric observatory. Third call is now open!

In order to apply, you should complete the online Application form before January 5th 2023.

The call timeline is as follows:

  • Call dates: 10 Oct 2022 -5 Jan 2023
  • Info day for users and providers: 7 Dec 2022 (virtual)
  • Feasibility until 20 Jan 2023
  • Review until 17 Feb 2023
  • Final selection meeting 20-24 Feb 2023
  • Final list on 28 Feb 2023
  • Indicative access period: March 2023 / March 2024

One of the main objectives of ATMO ACCESS is to provide coordinated open physical, remote and virtual access to state-of-the-art facilities and services in atmospheric RIs and further enhance their range of products, capabilities and accessibility for a wide range of users, including the private sector.

Transnational Access (TNA) is provided in two types:

  • in person (physical access), with users physically visiting the facility/installation and receiving the service “hands-on”
  • remotely (remote access), with resources and services offered without users physically visiting the facility/installation

The access is free of charge and includes the logistical, technological and scientific support and the specific training that is needed to use the services provided by the facility.

Proposals are eligible if they meet the Transnationality criteria: the users must work in a country other than France.

The global ambition of the project is to address the needs for developing sustainable solutions based on the principles of open access and to develop guidelines and recommendations for governance, management and funding for efficient and effective access provision suited to distributed atmospheric RIs. This project investigates the most suitable mechanisms that could lead to the sustainable provision of access to atmospheric research infrastructures.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme through the ATMO-ACCESS Integrating Activity under grant agreement No 101008004.
