TERRINet ProjectAccess to
Robotics Research Infrastructures

What about the access?

Transnational access means free of charge, trans-national access to research infrastructures or installations for selected user groups.
The access includes the logistical, technological and scientific support and the specific training that is usually provided to external researchers using the infrastructure.

Where you can work?

See here the 15 Robotics Research Infrastructures where you can develop your scientific project!

How to get access?

Access will be granted to users through an Open Calls-based mechanism.

Applicants shall submit a proposal where they explain the scientific project to be implemented at one of the Robotics Research Infrastructures.

Proposals will be evaluated by a Panel of Evaluators with expertise in the fields addressed.

Selected users will be granted with FULLY COVERED access, meaning that they will be refunded of the eligible costs (travel, accommodation and subsistence) sustained during the access.

STEP 1

Idea
Have you a brilliant scientific idea but no robotic platform to implement it? Define it and go to step 2!

STEP 2

Infrastructure
Choose the right platform and relative robotics research infrastructure to develop your idea.

STEP 3

Apply
Prepare you research project and apply to the open calls.

STEP 4

Evaluation
Experts will evaluate your research proposal and give you a feedback.

STEP 5

Preparatory work
Your project have been selected! TERRINet Team will help you preparing your access.

STEP 6

Implementation
Implement your project on selected platform and good luck with your experiment!

TERRINet OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Coronavirus pandemic

Dear TERRINet applicants and future users,

we sincerely hope that you are staying safe in these challenging times that we are facing at the moment. The current emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply changed our lives. The recent and progressive lock-down forced us to reorganize our working routines in smart working modalities and to shut down the TERRINet infrastructures. Therefore, we regret to inform you that Trans-National Access has been suspended until further notice.

However, we would like to reassure you that we will keep evaluating the proposals submitted for Trans-National Access regularly. Indeed, despite access cannot be allowed for a while, the selected users will be queued and access will take over gradually as soon as the situation will allow it. We also inform you that a special application mechanism has been settled in TERRINet to mitigate the delays that will occur due to the COVID-19.

The Open Call no. 4 is currently open: we are accepting proposals under the new mechanism called "first come, first served". Proposals are directly forwarded to the evaluation panel as soon as they are submitted. Proposals submitted closer to the deadline will be dispatched after that. The deadline for the Open Call n.4 will be on May 31, 2020.

Do not hesitate! Get this unique opportunity to be granted with fully-covered access (including travel and accommodation costs) to 15 leading European robotics labs and 100+ best robotic platforms and to get in touch with leading robotic experts. 

For any additional questions, please, contact us at info@terrinet.eu

 Let's take this time of the world calming down to plan our future. 

Stay safe.  

TERRINet team
