The JERICO-NEXT project is offering access to Observing systems, such as ferrybox lines, fixed platforms, including cabled observatories, gliders, and fishing vessels based in coastal and shelf-sea areas around Europe.

Supporting facilities, such as calibration and research laboratories, complete the offer, as also certain specific kinds of special equipment. These may be used alone or in conjunction with one or more of the observing systems, but priority will be given to the projects using both (Supporting facilities/Special equipment and Observing systems).
