The MaRINET2 project has a new call open to provide access to marine research facilities. If you’re looking to test your offshore renewable device or component, you could get free access to one of dozens of facilities.
The objective of the transnational access is to offer users free-of-charge access to the research and testing facilities of the MaRINET2 network. As there are limitations to the amount of access available for each facility, it is necessary to set a procedure over the whole duration of the project allowing optimum use of access time. Therefore, five periods of access will be organised over the lifespan of the project, each of them having a 6-month duration. A selection procedure will be organised for each of these access periods, starting with a call for proposals scheduled at least 3 months ahead of the starting date of the access period.
Calls for proposals are managed through the MaRINET2 website. A specific workspace was designed for applicants to fill in a formatted proposal form. Registering to a protected user account is required to access the workspace in order to guarantee confidentiality of the proposals. A transnational access webinar demonstrating a step-by-step guide as to the application process will be held on Wednesday, August 28th.
