  • Description of previous MSEs


ALTER-Net wishes to support LTER-Europe by demonstrating the value of LTER sites as locations for multi-site experiments.  Therefore proposals that specify using LTER-Europe sites, or which could easily be carried at some LTER-Europe sites, are encouraged. Proposals don’t, however, have to be exclusively based at LTER-Europe sites.

Priority will be given to proposals with well-formulated research questions and activities that are supported by multiple ALTER-Net partners. ALTER-Net will not finance labour hours, but will finance operating costs and traveling costs needed for carrying out the experiment.
