The Institut Pasteur is hosting the online workshop “Transnational access (TNA): guidelines and procedures” that will take place on 21st and 22nd September 2020. The aim of this event is the establishment of guidelines for the harmonised implementation of management procedures concerning the first call of the TNA programme in January 2021. This workshop specially targets the Liaison Officers, who are the local contacts for applicants based in each of the 13 access providers from 9 countries across Europe participating in the TNA initiative.
The meeting agenda addresses scientific, administrative, financial and legal aspects of the TNA such as access implementation and costs, TNA catalogue, contract, communications and online tools for management of proposals. Discussions about the conception and design of scientific workflows for the TNA are also foreseen.
Moreover, thanks to collaborations with other EU-RI projects, such as CatIRS and EMBRC-ERIC, the participants will have the opportunity to hear from fellow coordinators and access officers the challenges and experiences faced during the development of other TNA programmes.
