Open Access to research aircraft in the EUFAR fleet
Convener: Philip Brown 
Thu, 11 Apr, 19:00–20:00  / Room B11

EUFAR is the European Facility for Airborne Research and links together a number of operators of research aircraft and airborne instrumentation across Europe. Until now, it has provided Transnational Access to the facilities with funding support from the European Commission. However, it is now seeking to implement a new system in which aircraft access is provided in exchange for resources in-kind, independently of EC funding. Examples of the latter may include the provision of staff to work at the aircraft operator facility or contributions towards the development of new airborne instrumentation.

The purpose of this meeting is to describe the Open Access scheme and to seek expressions of interest from scientists and institutions who may wish to participate.
