Promoting access to research platforms in atmospheric sciences

The European research community of atmospheric sciences has received 15 million euros from the H2020 programme of the European Commission, in order to promote access to its research infrastructures. The ATMO-ACCESS consortium (“Sustainable Access to Atmospheric Research Facilities”) gathers together 38 scientific institutions from 19 European countries of the atmospheric research infrastructures ACTRIS, ICOS et IAGOS, and is coordinated by the French National Research Centre (CNRS).
