Call for Proposals within the Peer Review Programme

EISCAT Peer-Review Programme: Call for Proposals The EISCAT Scientific Association invites applications for observing time on the EISCAT facilities in 2019; by individual scientists, research groups and consortia throughout the world on equal, competitive basis. This means that anyone can apply, independent of whether or not the applicant is from an EISCAT associate country. While evaluations are merit based, in the case of two applications having similar merits in evaluation: preference will be given either to those applicants who are new to the EISCAT facilities, in order to enlarge the EISCAT user community and further more open access to the facilities, or to the applicant showing stronger educational impact in their proposal. The present call is the first one for 2019. In total, 200 hours of experiment time are open for international, peer-reviewed competition, and are available for the use of any of the current EISCAT facilities. Roughly half of this time has been allocated on the first call. Please refer to the details of the call for...

Sweden Solar System Last Tuesday two Polish documentary filmmakers went on a tour of our Kiruna antenna. Aldona and Adam are making a documentary about Sweden Solar System. This is a scale model of the solar system with Globen, in Stockholm, as the sun.  At the Institute of Space Physics (IRF), at 950 km from Globen, we have the the Termination shock. This is the outermost limit of our sun's influence in space.

International Summer School

International Summer School on "Data Management in Environmental and Earth Science Infrastructures: theory and practice" Are you a Ph.D. student, post-doctoral researcher or data management staff working in the relevant international research infrastructures? Don't miss this opportunity to get a unique insight into the contemporary debate on Data Management in the environmental and earth sciences. In recent years, one of the major challenges in the Environmental and Earth Science has been managing and searching ever larger volumes of data, collected across multiple disciplines. The ENVRIplus project investigated a collection of more than 20 representative environmental research infrastructures (RIs) from different areas. By examining these research infrastructures and their characteristics, a common data lifecycle was identified. The data lifecycle is structured in five phases: Data Acquisition, Data Curation, Data Publishing, Data Processing and Data Use. Many different standards, approaches, and tools have been developed to support the Data Lifecycle. In particular, modern semantic technologies provide a promising way to properly describe and interrelate...

EOSC-hub project

EOSC-hub project

EOSC-hub project The EOSC-hub project started on 01 January,  was officially recently launched. The project brings together 100 partners, EISCAT is one of them, from more than 50 countries and will develop the vision of the Hub as the integration and management system of the future European Open Science Cloud. The EOSC-hub project mobilises providers from the EGI Federation, EUDAT CDI, INDIGO-DataCloud and other major European research infrastructures to deliver a common catalogue of research data, services and software for research. Read the full announcement here: http://eosc-hub.eu/eosc-hub-integrated-services-european-open-science-cloud. A website is being built and will be ready in a while.
