The ASSEMBLE Plus team are launching a new and final call for access to some of Europe’s best marine research facilities and services, once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Researchers from industry and academia are invited to apply for free access to more than 30 international institutions from December 2020 to June 2021. Funded by the European Union, the ASSEMBLE Plus programme supports marine researchers to carry out their own projects using resources not available in their home institutes. The initiative helps participants to enhance their skills, create new collaborations and contribute to scientific understanding.
