The European Center for Aerosol Calibration (ECAC) provides transnational access to three facilities:
- the World Calibration Center for Aerosol Physics (WCCAP),
- the European Reference Laboratory for Air Pollution (ERLAP), and the
- Aerosol Chemical Monitor Calibration Center (ACMCC).
These facilities are available for various calibration/intercomparison workshops, inter-laboratory comparisons, as well as on-site intercomparisons & audits. The workshops and intercomparisons are open to teams of one or more researchers/users from European and non-European institutions as well as to small and medium size enterprises including ACTRIS partners and associate partners. Access will be provided via Trans-National Access (TNA) by the EU research infrastructure ACTRIS.
ECAC has scheduled a number of intercomparison and calibration workshops up to 2017
TNA is open to all users, however, it should be noted that operators or related instruments from ACTRIS and ACTRIS-associate site should strive to submit a proposal for participation at least once be intercompared during ACTRIS-2, and lab intercomparisons for OE/EC should be done preferably on a yearly basis.
