Proposals are invited from established and young researchers that relate to research on the natural environment (geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and cryosphere) of the Abisko area. Some specific scientific areas are particularly encouraged, such as projects that integrate or link existing research groups, (e.g., IPY projects, SCANNET), projects led by scientists from new EU-member states, projects that focus on environmental processes during winter, and projects by first-time Abisko users and research groups. The Abisko Scientific Research Station is a unique, long-established, modern and comprehensive infrastructure situated in a wilderness area about 200 km north of the Arctic Circle within a range of terrestrial and freshwater environments. The station is easily accessible by road, rail, and air, and provides a unique milieu of international environmental expertise.
