JERICO-S3-TA-Application-Form -2nd-Call (187.4 KiB)

JERICO-S3-Guidance-note 2nd-Call 2021 (199.5 KiB)

The JERICO-S3 project is offering access to ferrybox lines, fixed platforms, cabled observatories, glider fleets, calibration facilities and various other specialist Marine equipment 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.

In this 2nd call, Jerico S3 would like to highlight and support the collaboration between Jerico-RI TA facilities and AQUACOSM-plus (https://www.aquacosm.eu/) infrastructures. As a specific action, JERICO-S3 and AQUACOSM-plus study jointly how extreme events affect plankton ecosystem, by applying both observations on natural communities and by experimentation at selected sites (Cretan Sea, North-West Mediterranean and Baltic Sea). Jerico-S3 TA projects supporting these actions are especially welcomed and strongly encourage the involvement between the RI-RI facilities.

Go ahead and browse the JERICO-S3 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 TA’ option in the Menu bar; items are sorted either by country or by facility type (Cabled observatories, Ferryboxes,  Fixed Platforms, Gliders, Specialised Equipment, Supporting Facilities). Please check the guideline notes for the updated list of facilities available during the second call. 

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-S3 will provide them with technical assistance, travel support and complimentary core measurements that may be necessary to their work, if these are available. Projects will be selected on the basis of the quality and novelty of the proposed activities
