Within the Transnational Access activities (TA) of the IMECC project, access to European Carbon Cycle Measurements Facilities is provided to user groups.
IMECC provides support for sites or laboratories to provide services to other scientists. This can enable, for example, access to measurement sites for validating accounting models or new instruments measurements developped either by research institutions or private companies.
Types of facilities: analysis labs, atmospheric measurement sites, bio-manipulation experimental sites and ecological flux measurement sites.
The TA funding is dedicated to the providers of TA services. Thus, if necessary, the users are strongly encouraged by IMECC to apply for e.g., travel funding near these selected mobility projects.
Collaboration with other projects: Partners both in IMECC and other project (e.g. Carbo-Extreme) can plan to use funding of other project to facilitate IMECC TA.
To ensure an overall balance in the IMECC types of TA access being granted, access is managed by a single central committee
