The Europlanet 2020 Research Infrastructure  is a major programme funded under Horizon 2020 to support the research activities of the European planetary science community and particularly to foster collaboration.

A central part of the programme is to allow any European researcher interested in pursuing planetary science research access to a comprehensive set of laboratory facilities and field sites tailored to the needs of planetary research.

Access is provided by a Transnational Access (TA) programme which supports travel and local accommodation costs of European researchers at the facility for an approved period of time to conduct their own research programme.
