Integrating research infrastructures run by different organisations, in different countries and from different funding streams is always an ambitious task. Where these infrastructures are located in a harsh environment, difficult to access and often unmanned for months, the challenge takes on a whole new layer of complexity. In the Arctic, for example. Sparsely populated and particularly fragile, this is also the area of the world undergoing the fastest rate of climate-related change. An international alliance of researchers is taking field research and monitoring activities in this region to new heights. The EU supports under FP7 more than 70 networks of research infrastructures covering all scientific fields. The aim is to optimise the use of the facilities by providing support to transnational access and to develop joint research activities.
