The ECN Cairngorms site is part of the EU Framework 7 project, INTERACT. This project runs a Transnational Access programme that offers access to 20 research stations in northernmost Europe and the Russian Federation. The sites represent a variety of glacier, mountain, tundra, boreal forest, peatland and freshwater ecosystems, providing opportunities for researchers from natural sciences to human dimension.

The call for proposals for research visits to these stations will be open at the INTERACT website from 1st August – 30th September 2013. This will be for Transnational Access visits taking place between October 2013 and October 2014.

Transnational Access includes:

  • Free access for user groups/users to research facilities and field sites, including support for travel and logistic costs
  • Free access to information and data in the public domain held at the infrastructures.
