MaRINET2: Inviting applications to offer to the users free-of-charge access to the research and testing facilities of the MaRINET2 network.

Funding brief: The objective of the transnational access is to offer to the 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 organized over the lifespan of the project, each of them having a 6-month duration. A selection procedure will be organized 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.

Priorities: The User Selection Board shall base its selection on scientific merit, i.e. evidence of a rigorous test plan following the Development and Testing Protocol, quality of the project and competence of the applicants. Priority is given to User Groups composed of users who:
● Have not previously used the MaRINET2 infrastructure
● Are working in countries where no such research infrastructures exist
● Consist of young researchers, taking into account the parity of male-female users
● Are from outside the MaRINET2 network
