A “continuously – open” mechanism will be applied to gather/select proposals but, as a general rule, applicant(s) should submit their proposal between two and six months before they wish to begin their visit.
NEW!: ExpeER now offers “Fast Track” transnational access applications to researchers interested in visiting one or more TA sites for a brief period (max. 5 days) ! If it is your case, please fill the “Fast Track” form.
Applicants are requested to firstly submit a short proposal (pre-application form) via the ExpeER website, which will automatically be sent to the TA Coordination Team, as well as to the Site Manager of the relevant research facility. At this stage the eligibility of the proposed access (in line with above referenced eligibility criteria) and the feasibility of the proposed work (in consultation with the ExpeER facility/site) will be evaluated. Candidates will be informed within 2 – 4 weeks of the outcome of the eligibility phase. If the outcome is positive, candidates will be asked to get in touch with the Site Manager of the ExpeER facility/site concerned before completing the full application form.
Prior to submitting their application, applicants are advised to contact the Site Manager for which access is being requested to clarify the practical arrangements. Further clarifications of the proposed access can be provided via the downloadable TA forms (return address in the form).
1) General Information :
2) Project Information :
3) Additional information :
The TA selection process will give priority to collaborative projects promoting science, methodology, and technology transfer and advancement. Since the successful completion of a transnational experiment and publication of the data do not only depend on a successful field period, but is also dependent on further support to complete the subsequent analysis of data and publishing process, users/user groups that can show sufficient funding for such completion of the experiment should be given priority over users that cannot.
The evaluation of TA will be a two-step process, in line with the two-step application process described above.
