Dear colleagues,

the PLANAQUA platform from Ecole normale supérieure and CNRS nearby Paris is ready to receive projects using our aquatic mecososms and macrocosms in 2020. This competitive call allows us to fund 2-3 standard projects per year coordinated by a foreign researcher and it covers the calls of travel, lodging and manipulation on site. Our staff will contribute to preparation, implementation and data analysis of research projects. Please contact Gérard Lacroix and Sarah Fiorini for further information and check out the detailed procedure below.

Examples of projects hosted during the two last years include manipulation of boat noise, studies of the impact of environmental change on invasive species, monitoring of zooplankton migration or investigations of turbulence effects on the bio-geochemistry of sediment-water interface. Take a tour of the AQUACOSM portal to discover the metadata from these experiments or contact us for more details.

Deadline in a little bit more than a month !

Please spread the news in your research networks.

All the best,

The EU Research Infrastructure project AQUACOSM ( has opened the 3rd CALL for Transnational Access to fund participation or leadership of mesocosm experiments in 2020. We open for access to more than 33 aquatic mesocosm facilities, located at 15 AQUACOSM partners throughout Europe.

AQUACOSM offers funding for mesocosm experiments through a unique collaborative international project, representing a full cross section of Aquatic Ecosystems. The ecosystems represents a range from freshwater to estuarine and marine systems, covering the Sub-Arctic to the Mediterranean and beyond, from mountains to lowlands spanning from ultra-oligotrophic to hyper-eutrophic conditions, including benthic and pelagic systems.

AQUACOSM specifically aims to promote effective international scientific collaboration and technological knowledge transfer across traditional barriers between regions, countries and traditionally separated science disciplines, such a marine and freshwater research. As up to 20% of the funded participants may be from countries outside the European Union and its associated member states it also represents a truly world-wide opportunity!
