Fifth Call for Access

On a regular basis, the AQUAEXCEL2020 project will invite proposals from European research groups for scientific research that utilises the facilities of any of the participating aquaculture research infrastructures. The AQUAEXCEL2020 project unites major aquaculture experimental facilities with capacity to undertake experimental trials on a selection of commercially important fish aquaculture species and system types. These installations are made available to the research community for Transnational Access (TNA) with the support of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. Transnational Access involves a research group in one country collaborating with one or more AQUAEXCEL2020 Infrastructures that are located in a different country to the applicant, and which offer facilities and expertise not available in their own country.

The facilities available cover the entire range of production systems (cage, pond, recirculation, flowthrough, hatchery and disease challenge); environments (freshwater, marine, cold, temperate and warm water); scales (small, medium and industrial scale); fish species (salmonids, cold and warm water marine fish, freshwater fish and artemia); and fields of expertise (nutrition, physiology, health & welfare, genetics, engineering, monitoring & management technologies).

Interested researchers can propose projects that involve visits of one or in some cases two people to the chosen research infrastructure for periods of up to three months. Access to the research infrastructures and associated travel and subsistence expenses will be paid for under the project. The establishment of new transnational collaborations is strongly encouraged, as well as the participation by SMEs.

Application procedure

Information on the facilities offering Transnational access is available at this project website and in the documents below. Applicants are required to contact their preferred partner facility to discuss the project design and costs for the proposed project, before the submission of an application. Applications must be prepared and submitted via the TNA online application system. Each person involved in the application must first create an individual username to access the system. Further guidance on using the system is provided at that web site. Submissions must be made on or before the announced Call deadline – 17 April 2017.

  • First Call for Access

    On a regular basis, the AQUAEXCEL2020 project invites proposals from European research groups for scientific research that utilises the installations of any of the participating aquaculture research infrastructures. These facilities are made available to the research community for Transnational Access (TNA) with the support of the European Union's Horizon 2020 Programme.

    The facilities available cover the entire range of aquaculture production systems (recirculation, flow-through, cage, hatchery and pond systems); environments (freshwater and marine, cold, temperate and warm water); scales (small, medium and industrial scale); fish species (salmon, trout, sea bass, sea bream, cod, carp etc.); and fields of expertise (nutrition, physiology, health and welfare, genetics, engineering, monitoring and management technologies).

    The overall objective of the project is to promote the coordinated use and development of these experimental facilities and encourage problem-based research and knowledge transfer to more effectively support the development of a sustainable European production of high quality seafood with reduced environmental impact.

    Interested researchers can propose projects that:

    • Involve research on any of the available aquatic species at the selected research infrastructure.
    • Are compliant with the EATiP Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda.
    • Involve visits of one or two people to a research infrastructure that provides installations not available in their own country, for periods of up to three months.

    The 1st Call for Access is now closed (deadline was 11 March 2016).
