This is a unique opportunity for scientists and engineers to avail of high-quality, interlinked instrumented infrastructures operating in coastal and shelf-sea areas for carrying out research and/or testing activities.

Interested users can request access to one or more facilities. JERICO will provide them with technical assistance, travel support and often many core measurements that may be necessary to their work. Visitors and projects will be selected on the basis of the quality and novelty of the proposed activities.

Preparing the proposals, the users are asked to verify the particulars of access to the facility they wish to utilize by contacting the relevant operator (find the contacts at the Available facilities page).

This will permit a better understanding of the feasibilities of the proposed projects by the very parties who will be working together if they are approved, while also fostering closer cooperation between them in addressing practical concerns.
