Call for project proposals at open space event: "Science meets research sites & platforms"
The European co-ordinators and managers of LTER sites and LTSER platforms will hold their conference on 1-5 December 2008 in Mallorca. The first day of this conference will be an Open space Science meets research sites & platforms, where research concepts can be presented to a community representing a unique infrastructure spread all over Europe and innumerable data collections that might be used in research projects.
We are looking for people to contribute to the development of potential projects that will use potential of the network of LTER sites. The Open Space in the next LTER meeting will allow such an initiative to begin. Any idea can be brought to the meeting as a short introduction followed by a discussion and plan for elaboration of an European project.
- IF you/your team/your institution have ideas or concepts for research projects requiring research sites, field work or experiments over a wider spatial gradient (sub-/continental) or long-term research and monitoring data,
- IF you want to answer burning questions that require research infrastructure, which an individual research project can hardly provide or at least not set up AND run in due time to produce appropriate data ...
- YOU have now the opportunity to capitalize on the results of 4 years efforts to set up a European network of long-term research sites and regions.
