About eLTER RI
We live in a world of rapid social, economic and ecosystem change, facing major environmental challenges such as global warming, biodiversity loss and pressures on natural resources. Addressing these topics requires world-class ecosystem research by a well-connected, extensive community of experts, supported by advanced sites and facilities, openly shared and easily accessible data and capacity building programmes. This is the goal of the eLTER Research Infrastructure (еLTER RI).
eLTER is now in the preparatory phase on the way to becoming a fully fledged Research Infrastructure. The Preparatory Phase Project, funded by the European Commission (2020-2025) will support this process. Below you see the timeline according to which we are working.
