Fwd: Fw: 3rd ENVRIplus Call for Multi-domain Access to Environmental Research Infrastructures is open

ENVRIplus call for access to European multi-disciplinary environmental
research platforms. One
of the platforms is a site close to the Pyrénées ("P2OA-drones") with a
squadron(word?) of fixed wings available for scientific use.
Candidates, when selected, can get up to 10k€ from Europe to cover their
