Resources

Find what you are looking for

Over the course of the ACTION project we develop a number of resources that are hopefully interesting for the scientific community, citizen scientists, decision makers and funding agencies and the public at large. 

These include academic outputs as Research Deliverables, scientific articles, webinars as well as dissemination resources such as videos and other information materials about the project. You will find all these resources in this page. 

ACTION developed also the ACTION OPEN SCIENCE PORTAL. There you will find not only the resources available in this page, but also the datasets developed by the ACTION team and its pilots.
