The Call for Access for Trees4Future facilities opened in June 2012.
Trees4Future: Your gateway to accessing forest research facilities in Europe Take advantage of the expertise, services and data offered by Trees4future – free of charge!
Trees4Future is a dynamic platform offering access to research facilities that can help the European forestry and wood industries develop sustainable solutions for the future in the context of climate change. European researchers and other experts can gain free access to a wide range of specialised forest research infrastructures, from the molecular to the forest landscape level. The 28 facilities on offer across Europe include genetic databanks, biobanks, models and decision-support systems and laboratories.
Apply now! Successful applicants will receive a contribution of up to 450€ to their travel costs and a daily subsistence allowance for visiting and using the facilities under expert guidance.
Free access is also provided to several online databases.
For more information on the facilities offered, the Call for Access and how to apply, please visit www.trees4future.eu/transnational-accesses.html or contact our colleagues Cristina Martinez and Paola Rosà.
