The collaboration of ENSAR2 consortium with these laboratories outside Europe aims to provide access to the facilities for European physicists and vice versa to the facilities of ENSAR2 RIs to non-European physicists following the rules of the various infrastructures, i.e. approved projects based on scientific merits and feasibility. 

These international labs will cover the daily expenses of European physicists, while performing experiments at their infarstructures, according to local per diem rules. Vice versa, ENSAR2 will cover the daily expenses of physicists belonging to these labs, while performing experiments at ENSAR2 RIs, according to local per diem rules of the ENSAR2 RIs.

In this way, ENSAR2 will be able to provide transnational access to its facilities to international users from outside the European Union and associated countries. This could be up to 20% of the total ENSAR2 quantity of access allocated to transnational access.
