H2020 ASSEMBLE-PLUS Project at IUI    

ASSEMBLE Plus is a marine infrastructure access consortium of 23 partner organisations from 16 countries, operating under the umbrella of the European Marine Biological Research Centre (EMBRC-ERIC). It integrates 32 marine biological stations from various regions of the world's oceans and seas. Access to the services of these marine stations forms the core of the ASSEMBLE Plus project. The project aims at providing scientists from academia, industry and policy-makers with a programme of transnational access (TA) and virtual access (VA) to its marine biological research facilities, historical observation data, and to advanced training opportunities in order to stimulate fundamental and applied research excellence in marine biology and ecology in Europe.

See: http://www.assembleplus.eu

Prospective users can apply for funding to access the ASSEMBLE Plus facilities to carry out TA projects. The calls are issued twice yearly: more information can be found under http://www.assembleplus.eu/access/site-and-remote-access.

A 9th and final Call is now open, with deadline Feb 13 2022.

More information about VA projects can be found under http://www.assembleplus.eu/access/virtual-access .

To be eligible to benefit from access to any of the ASSEMBLE infrastructure sites, an applicant must satisfy the following two conditions:

  • The PI must work in an institution established in a Member State of the European Union or State associated to the H2020 programme.
  • The PI must carry out the project in a partner country but not the partner country where they current live in.

This project will run from 2017 to 2022.

This is a good opportunity to have colleagues in your field of interest apply to IUI but also for you to apply to carry out research in partner country stations. Feel free to contact me by e-mail (simonb@mail.huji.ac.il) or phone (054-8- 820-073) if you have questions or need advice.
