Long-Term Ecosystem Research in Europe

Networks & sites

About the infrastructure (networks and sites) that make up LTER-Europe

LTER-Europe comprises national networks of research and monitoring sites. Each network is separately governed, but, through their involvement in LTER-Europe, they strive to work together.

There are two categories of LTER research and monitoring locations:

  • LTER sites for ecosystem research and monitoring 
  • LTSER platforms larger areas, often containing nested LTER sites, that support Long-Term Socio-Ecological Research.
 
Within the eLTER H2020 project, LTER-Europe is collaborating with European Critical Zone Observatories to jointly develop both networks and achieve greater integration.
 

Research access to selected sites & platforms

Where will your research take you?

The eLTER H2020 project's Transnational Access scheme provides funds to support short research visits to selected LTER sites and LTSER platforms.
