The Thematic Core Service (TCS) Multi-scale laboratories (MSL) 2nd TNA pilot Call was a great success with 28 applications submitted for access to 13 solid Earth laboratory facilities across Europe.

The scientific proposals have been evaluated by four disciplinary TNA committees composed of laboratory experts, external and internal to the TCS MSL. The selection process was very competitive and the members of the TNA committees had the hard task to evaluate high quality and worthwhile proposals.

Twenty-three excellent TNA projects were selected and will benefit of direct physical access, remote services and virtual access to advanced European solid Earth Science laboratories. The TNA projects will run from February to December 2018.
