for activities scheduled in the period October 2016 – September 2017 subsequent to a formal screening and selection process.

The JERICO-NEXT project is offering access to ferrybox lines, fixed platforms, including cabled observatories, glider fleets, and fishing vessels based in coastal and shelf-sea areas around Europe.

Calibration and research laboratories complement the offer, as also certain specific kinds of special equipment. These are intended to be used in conjunction with one or more of the observing systems mentioned above.

Go ahead and browse the JERICO-NEXT catalogue of available infrastructures and facilities to find the ones most suitable to your research purposes!!!

The catalogue of facilities is accessible by clicking on through the ‘Jerico Facilities in TNA’ option in the Menu bar; items are sorted either by country or by facility type (Cabled observatories, Ferryboxes, Fishing Vessels, Fixed Platforms, Gliders, Specialised Equipment, Supporting Facilities).

In addition to this catalogue, an interactive map has been provided to allow you to visualise the locations of all the facilities, to zoom in and out, and to view cursory descriptions of single elements by hovering over them with your cursor. Clicking the ‘View Details’ button in the popup, will permit you to recover more information and go directly to the relative facility page in the catalogue.

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 in the same proposal. JERICO-NEXT will provide them with technical assistance, travel support and complimentary core measurements that may be necessary to their work, if these are available.
