Second Call

The second call for access to the JERICO Coastal Observatories and Calibration Facilities is open

from 14 January 2013 to 18 March 2013

with activities scheduled to start in the early summer of 2013 subsequent to a formal screening and selection process.

The JERICO project is offering access to different ferrybox lines in the Baltic Sea, the Greater North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, various networks of fixed platforms and other single fixed point installations (buoys, towers, shore stations and underwater installations), and glider fleets based in the Greater North Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Calibration laboratories are also being put up for access.

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.

Detailed information on the facilities offered for access, the eligibility of users, rules and selection procedures can be found on this website using the following links

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).

It is mandatory that user groups interact directly with the manager of the facility/ies they wish to use during the preparation of proposals. 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.

Proposals have to be drawn up following the attached template and sent by email within
