Funding for long-term ecosystem observations

New funding from EU to support the research infrastructures for long-term observations on the environment and ecosystems.

European long-term ecosystem research infrastructure eLTER has gained funding from EU to support and develop the infrastructure. This includes, for example, harmonising the research methods and measurement, opening and increasing the usability of existing and new data measued at eLTER sites, and creating new tools to measure and foresee the state of the environment.
