The call for INTERACT Transnational Access has been extended until 7th of September. The exciting venue offers the opportunity to visit research sites and gain access to information and equipment on site.

The call covers the winter season from October 2011 to April 2012 (with some variation on different sites), and summer season May to September 2012 for stations located in Russian Federation.

This project has a main objective to build capacity for identifying, understanding, predicting and responding to diverse environmental changes throughout the wide environmental and land-use envelopes of the Arctic.

Examples of potential research fields include animal sciences and botany, climate change research and environmental monitoring, ecology, ecosystems and biodiversity, contaminants, geography, geology and related fields, glaciology , limnology, paleolimnology and hydrology and social sciences and humanities.
