Unfortunately, there will be no possibility for a new call within HYDRALAB III, because we have granted all our available access days.
However, we hope for your Expression of Interest for Hydralab IV
Expression of Interest for Hydralab IV
For many years a consortium of European research institutes is offering free access to their large experimental facilities. These institutes are working together in the Hydralab consortium (www.Hydralab.eu), which is financially supported by the EC. We are presently preparing a proposal for the EC to continue in the period 2011-2014.
In this process we would like to know whether you are interested in using our experimental facilities in this period. The following facilities will be available:
Overview available facilities within proposal for Hydralab IV (2011-2014)
|Deltares Delft, the Netherlands||Delta Flume, Vinje Bassin, Schelde Flume, Rotating Anular Flume, Water & Soil Flume, and GeoCentrifuge|
|CNRS, France||Coriolis platform (Grenoble)
Stratified Flume (Toulouse)
|DHI Horsholm, Denmark||Shallow Water Basin and Offshore Wave Basin|
|HSVA Hamburg, Germany||Large Ice Model Basin (LIMB) and Arctic Environmental Test Basin (AETB)|
|LUH Hannover, Germany||Large Wave Channel|
|Marintek Trondheim, Norway||Ocean Basin|
|NTNU Trondheim, Norway||Bay of Hopavågen with the Sletvik field station|
|Teknillinen Korkeakoulu Espoo, Finland||Ship Laboratory / Ice Tank|
|University of Hull, UK||Total Environment Simulator|
|CIEM Barcelona, Spain||CIEM Barcelona, Spain|
Please send an e-mail with expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of your proposed research and the facility you want to use for this project. If we are successful in acquiring a contract from the EC, we will issue a call for proposals in the beginning of 2011. An international and independent user selection panel will select the best proposals to be granted access to the facilities. The grant includes all costs related to the use of the facility and travel and subsistence costs during the experiments for the visiting researchers. Only research groups are eligible of which the majority is from EC countries (or associated countries: Iceland, Israel, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey).
We would like to receive your expression of interest before November 20, 2009.
Call for Proposal
Free Access to Major Facilities within Hydraulics, Geophysical hydrodynamics, Environmental fluid dynamics, Ship dynamics and Ice engineering
Within HYDRALAB research teams with a majority of team members from the European Union and Associated States (Iceland, Israel, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey) have been invited to submit proposals for access free of charge to major and unique facilities at top institutes in Europe.
The programme provides user groups access free of charge to the facilities for their research project and covers travel and subsistence costs. The programme is intended for short access periods, not exceeding 3 months. State-of-the-art measuring instruments, data-acquisition and processing systems will be at their disposal, as well as modern support facilities, such as library, computers, processing and printing. Furthermore, the visiting researchers are offered a scientific intellectual environment, with assistance and guidance from experts at the host institute. Previous background in laboratory techniques is not a prerequisite as technical support and training are provided.
The access is funded by the 6th EC framework programme through the Integrated Infrastructure Initiative HYDRALAB III. We have published three open calls for proposal and have awarded more than 1600 access days in 70 projects.
