ACCESSING THE EMBRC SERVICES

There is an associated price to each service accessed through the EMBRC, which you may consult in the EMBRC portfolio.

You may also apply for specific funding mechanisms to cover the costs of accessing services through the EMBRC in situations of ‘Transnational Access’ (TNA), i.e., when a researcher affiliated to an institution located in one country aims to access the services provided by a marine station or research centre located in other countries.
