Nodes will be centres of expertise providing facilities and services, data storage and provision, experimental and in situ measurements facilities, state-of-the-art analytical capabilities and implementation of standardised procedures and quality control.
Leading Laboratories for the Nodes are in the UK (Observation Node), Germany (Analysis Node), Italy (Modelling Node) and the Netherlands (Impact Node).
Under the coordination of the Leading Laboratories, extra needs – both in facilities and geographical – will be identified. These needs will be satisfied by Accredited Service Providers: facilities to be developed and, if necessary, built under the coordination of the Leading Laboratories and respecting the DANUBIUS Common set of Standards, requirements and rules (DANUBIUS Commons).
