Implications of the COVID-19 outbreak
on the Transnational access programme

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, the ASSEMBLE Plus consortium would like to let you know that all users who successfully got grants through our Transnational Access programme will have their trips postponed to further notice

The current call for applications remains open (deadline: 24th April) as its period for access will start in September 2020 only. We hope that by that time we will function normally again and be able to host you to perform your research project.

The ASSEMBLE Plus team keeps functioning so do not hesitate to reach us at amt@embrc.eu for any questions, or to contact your access providers for any concern relating to your access.


ASSEMBLE Plus integrates over 30 marine biological stations and installations from various regions of the world's oceans and seas. Scientists from academia, industry and policy can make use of marine stations and their services applying for funding through the Transnational Access programme.


ASSEMBLE Plus is a consortium of 26 organisations from 16 countries operating under the umbrella of the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC-ERIC). Gathered also within ASSEMBLE Plus are five Joint Research Activities and four Networking Activities which have the aim of sharing research experience and research data and promoting FAIR data principles.
