INTERACT TA User Community meeting (POLAR2018 side meeting)




Davos, Switzerland


The International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic (INTERACT, ) is a network for research and monitoring in the Arctic, northern alpine and forest areas. The network of more than 80 terrestrial research stations hosts and operates high level scientific activities over a wide range of disciplines. Transnational, Remote and Virtual Access (TA, RA, VA) are three modalities of access that are offered free of charge to scientists all over the world to conduct research at 43 stations of the INTERACT network. The side event focuses on different aspects of Transnational, Remote and Virtual Access from characteristics of each modality to application, evaluation and implementation of access in practice. Examples from previous INTERACT TA, RA and VA projects will highlight the potential of different modalities of access over a range of disciplines and studies. The meeting will facilitate networking among previous, current and potential TA, RA and VA users, and create added value by highlighting how access can be used to address large and complex arctic system science questions, identified by international science organizations. What is the most suitable modality of INTERACT TA/RA/VA for your study? Come and learn more at the side event!
