Europlanet 2024 RI has announced its first call to support researchers with free access to planetary analogue field sites and planetary simulation and analysis laboratories.

Europlanet 2024 RI’s Transnational Access (TA) programme enables European researchers to visit 24 distributed laboratory facilities in Europe five planetary analogue field sites around the world.

The TA programme supports all travel and local accommodation costs of European and international researchers in order to conduct their research in accredited facilities and field sites.

Applicants can submit proposals to the TA programme through annual calls. Anonymised proposals will be evaluated by a peer-review process managed by the European Science Foundation independent of the Europlanet 2024 RI participants.

In order to qualify for “transnational access”, the applicants should only apply for access to facilities outside of the country in which they are employed. The TA programme can support up to two researchers for each visit and covering a time-period ranging from a few days to several weeks.
