Transnational Access in the field of marine biotechnology in EMBRIC
Program offers access to high-quality facilities and pioneering technology platforms of 15 Access Providers from European Research Infrastructures.

The European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster Transnational Access program has the objective to foster maturation of research projects in the field of marine biotechnology, giving access to selected Access Providers within the consortium.

Transnational Access to the EMBRIC consortium is provided to a single user or a User Group of up to two users. Users of the Transnational Access program can be researchers, students and technicians, from academia or industry, with their home institutions based in EU Member States or Associated Countries (as defined by the Horizon 2020 programme). ​Access for User Groups with a majority of users not working in EU Member States or Associated Countries is limited to 20% of the total amount of units of access provided. “Transnational” implies that the home institution of the main user (Project Leader) is based in a country other than the one in which the Access Provider is located.

The four European Research Infrastructures involved are:

  • AQUAEXCEL2020: facilities and tools for marine aquaculture
  • EMBRC: fundamental and applied research on marine bioresources and marine ecosystems
  • EU-OPENSCREEN: discovery of biologically active substances in all areas of Life Sciences
  • MIRRI: microbial resource for research and development in the field of biotechnology
