FP7 ASSEMBLE project at IUI

ASSEMBLE (Association of European Marine Biological Laboratories) is an FP7 research infrastructure initiative comprising a network of marine research stations. Transnational Access is provided to a comprehensive set of coastal marine ecosystems, to research vessels, state-of-the-art experimental facilities and to a wide variety of marine organisms; either on-site or by shipment. Networking activities are performed to enhance interoperability both within and outside of the ASSEMBLE network. This includes organizing workshops as well as establishing a virtual tool-box and a common database for marine organisms.

The next Call deadline for applying to the FP7 ASSEMBLE project for access to Research Infrastructures will be September 5 2013 for visits to take place at partner marine stations between December 1 2013 to August 31 2014.

The web site is: www.assemblemarine.org

To be eligible to benefit from access to any of the ASSEMBLE infrastructure sites; a user group (a research team of one or more researchers) must satisfy the following two conditions:

  • The user group leader and the majority of the users must work in an institution established in a Member State of the European Union or State associated to Framework Programme 7 (Switzerland, Israel, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Turkey, Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia, Albania and Montenegro).
  • The user group leader and the majority of the users must work in a country other than the country where the legal entity operating the ASSEMBLE infrastructure site applied for is established.

This project will run from 2009 to 2014.

This is a good opportunity to have colleagues in your field of interest apply to IUI but also for you to apply and to send excellent Israeli graduate students or post-docs to partner 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.
