ASSEMBLE Plus is a consortium of 23 partner organisations from 16 countries, operating under the umbrella of the European Marine Biological Research Centre (EMBRC-ERIC). It integrates 39 marine biological stations from various regions of the world's oceans and seas; providing scientists from academia, industry and policy with the services of these marine stations forms the core of the ASSEMBLE Plus project. Via a quality-assured programme of transnational access (TA) and virtual access (VA) to its marine biological research facilities, its historical observation data, and to advanced training opportunities, ASSEMBLE Plus aims to stimulate fundamental and applied research excellence in marine biology and ecology in Europe.

Prospective users can apply for funding to access the ASSEMBLE Plus facilities to carry out TA projects; more information about applying for TA and VA projects can be found under Access. Gathered within ASSEMBLE Plus are five Joint Research Activities, which have the aim of sharing research experience and research data and promoting FAIR data principles. The knowledge created within the ASSEMBLE Plus project will be shared with the community via the Knowledge Transfer Platform


The first call for Transnational Access has closed and the first set of successful applicants have been chosen. The next call will be announced here
