Young Researcher EUCOP planning meeting

EUCOP planning meetingAbisko Scientific Research Station hosts a series of meetings this week.
In additions to the PAGE21 General Assembly, the Research Station hosts the INTERACT Station Managers Forum at the end of the week, PAGE21 Young Researchers workshop tomorrow Sunday and Young permafrost researchers workshop today Saturday.
The Young permafrost scientists meeting today gathers together young professionals from International Permafrost Association, PAGE21, Canadian ADAPT permafrost  project and PYRN - Permafrost Young Researchers Network to plan for the upcoming EUCOP 2014 young researchers workshop.
PAGE21 young researchers take actively part in preparation of this workshop and will have a strong representation at the workshop next year.

INTERACT calls for proposals

(Logo: INTERACT) The INTERACT project under EU FP7 has a Transnational Access program that offers access to 20 research stations in the northernmost Europe and 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.
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
The call for proposals is open at the INTERACT website on 1st August – 30th September 2013 for access visits taking place between Oct 2013 and Oct 2014.
Transnational Access is available to user groups, where the group leader and majority of group members work in an institution established in a EU Member State or Associated State.
The maximum amount of access per user group is 90 person-days, including previously granted INTERACT Transnational Access.
The eligibility rules and application instructions, stations available in the call, descriptions of stations and their facilities, and registration to the on-line application system from can be found on the INTERACT website.
