Funding Opportunities

Assemble-Plus marine Infrastructure Access Call


ASSEMBLE Plus is a European Union-funded consortium of more than 30 marine biological stations and research institutes in 16 countries. Within the Transnational Access programme, (TA) ASSEMBLE Plus marine stations provide scientists and PhD students with free-of-charge access to their biological resources, facilities, services, and data.

The first two calls have already resulted in more than one hundred short-term research visits of users from all over the world, with many stories of success. One of our TA users, Diana Catarino (University of the Azores, Portugal) stated: "My project focused on the ichthyoplankton biodiversity on an Atlantic seamount using DNA metabarcoding. ASSEMBLE Plus gave me the opportunity to access cutting-edge high throughput sequencing platforms that are not present in my institute but available at Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn of Naples (SZN), Italy. The project has been very successful with more than five million sequences generated. The use of the facilities together with the expertise and advice from the local team of researchers were key factors in improving the likelihood of success of my research project”.

The next call for applications will open on 21 January 2019, and close on 17 February 2019. If you wish to apply, please check out how our Access Providers can serve your research needs. The application process involves submitting a short proposal that specifies the scientific context of your research, a research plan, and why you have chosen the access provider. You are encouraged to contact the Access Provider of your choice to explore the feasibility of your proposal. Submitted applications will be peer-reviewed by external experts. Applicants will be informed of the outcome within six weeks of the submission deadline.

If your proposal is successful, your chosen Access Provider will give you access to their labs and facilities at no cost (expensive consumables may incur a charge). Visits can last for up to 30 days and can include up to two persons per project. ASSEMBLE Plus also covers the costs of travel, accommodation and meals, within certain limits.
