FOR CORIOLIS ROTATING PLATFORM OF CNRS-GRENOBLE
HYDRALAB is a network of research institutes with world-leading hydraulic and hydrodynamic experimental facilities. The HYDRALAB+ project is funded by the European Commission through the Horizon2020 programme to strengthen the coherence of experimental hydraulic and hydrodynamic research by improving the infrastructures with a focus on adaptation to climate change issues. The project has three key objectives: (i) widen the use of and access to unique hydraulic and hydrodynamic research infrastructures in the EU; (ii) improve experimental methods to enhance hydraulic and hydrodynamic research and address the future challenges of climate change adaptation; and (iii) network with the experimental hydraulic and hydrodynamic research community throughout Europe and share knowledge and data with the wider scientific community and other stakeholders, including industry and government agencies.
This Third Call for Proposals is an invitation to all eligible research groups (see the summary of rules and conditions for transnational access) to submit a proposal for an experiment in one of the HYDRALAB+ major and unique facilities, free of charge.
The theme of HYDRALAB+ is ‘Adaptation to Climate Change’ and this focus will integrate Transnational Access projects with our Joint Research Activities (see website for further details
). We ask prospective Users of the facilities to make clear in their proposal how their research will contribute to our knowledge and understanding of adaptations to climate change.
The deadline for proposals is June 23rd, 2017
. Proposals received after this date cannot be considered.
