TA Call

Our Transnational Access (TA) calls offer free access to 17 unique ‘field scale’ urban drainage research facilities.

Our second TA Call is now closed!

Thank you to all the project groups who have submitted their proposal!

The second Co-UDlabs call has closed on October 13, 2023.

The proposals received are currently being reviewed by the facility providers to check their feasability and will then be sent to an External Evaluation Panel that will evaluate and select the best proposals.

The user group leaders of the granted projects will be informed of the outcome by the end of November and re-directed to facility providers to coordinate the access and sign the User Facility Agreement.
