Multiple services

AnaEE-ERIC offers capacities to develop multidisciplinary approaches combining experimentation, analysis, and modelling services. It provides easy access to research facilities and rely on geographic diversity to cover a wide range of ecosystems. The uniqueness and value lie in the emphasis on experimental methods. Our experimental facilities allows simulations of environmental changes which helps us understand the impact of differenct factors and how they interact. By combining this with modelling, we can predict how ecosystems will respond in the future, including identifying tipping points and understanding how ecosystems can adapt.

The services provided by AnaEE-ERIC is coordinated through the Central Hub with the three service centres; the Technology Centre, the Data and Modelling Centre and the Interface and Synthesis Centre, address four main categories of users. The primary target is the academic community, with services aiming to provide excellent infrastructure and experimental capabilities to researchers.
