VITALISE and MINKE project: Facilitating Transnational Access to European Research Infrastructures

VITALISE and MINKE project joined forces on Monday, 7 February 2022 to discuss about the optimisation of the processes of opening up research infrustructures for Transnational Access to European researchers, as well as explore synergetic opportunities.

The VITALISE Project Coordinator, Dr Evdokimos Konstantinidis, the Scientific Coordinator of the project, Prof. Panos Bamidis, Despoina Petsani (Harmonisation Board Coordinator) and Ada Pellumbaj (Dissemination and Communication Manager) met with Alina Luna, the Project Coordinator of MINKE project on Monday, 7 February 2022 to discuss about opening up research infrastructures to European researchers.

The main agenda items were:

  • The optimisation of the process of providing Transnational Access to European researchers, as well as deciding on the optimal selection criteria for the applicants of the Open Calls.
  • The exploration of opportunities to collaborate and promote the interests, goals and common good for both projects.

The discussion was very fruitful with interesting outcomes and essential exchange of knowledge.

About MINKE Project

MINKE is an INFRAIA project that brings together 16 key European marine metrology research infrastructures to coordinate their use and development and propose an innovative framework of ‘quality of oceanographic data’ for the different European actors in charge of monitoring and managing the EOVs (Essential Ocean Variables) and marine ecosystems. Data quality is the key element in Ocean & Coastal Observing Systems to provide reliable measurements for developing evidence-based environmental policies. MINKE doesn’t just address data quality but also focuses on all data quality dimensions, with a special emphasis on those related to metrological factors. The project proposes a new vision in the design of marine monitoring networks, integrating two dimensions of data quality, namely accuracy and completeness, as the driving components of quality in data acquisition.
