ACTRIS 2: Work Packages


The 13 ACTRIS-2 work packages are organized into Networking Activities, Transnational Access Activities, Virtual Access Activity, and Joint Research Activities.

Networking activities are the backbone of ACTRIS-2 (NA2-5). All partners contributing to the observations are included in NA2 and/or NA3 activities which will see the participation of many associate partners, including SMEs. NA1 is the management part of ACTRIS-2 to maintain the efficient structure of ACTRIS and includes management of Trans-National Access activities.

Transnational Access activities offer access to calibration facilities (TNA1-3) and observational facilities (TNA4) to the benefit of the scientific community. both partners and associated partners.

Virtual Access activity (VA1) enables access to all measurement data from ACTRIS stations and measurement platforms through the ACTRIS Data Centre (ACTRIS DC).

Joint Research activities (JRA1-3) are intended to upgrade and enhance the services offered by the RI in the future.
