International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic INTERACT has a main objective of building capacity for identifying, understanding, predicting and responding to diverse environmental changes throughout the wide environmental and land-use envelopes of the Arctic.
INTERACT was proposed by the existing SCANNET network of field stations situated in all eight Arctic countries. The cooperation has a long history between the European members, resulting from EU-funding in 2001-2004 within the 5th Framework Programme. This bottom-up network has expanded during the last 6 years with new members from Russia and North America to become a true circumarctic network of terrestrial field stations.
The INTERACT contract under FP7 has a Trans-National Access program that offers access to 18 research stations in Northernmost Europe and Russia. The call is now open for the summer season 2011.
