What is the European Contribution to EARTHTIME ?
The purpose of this initiative is to form a European platform of researchers working on both the development and the application of high-resolution Time Scales in the Earth Sciences. In the context of this ambition a first step was made by hosting an ESF sponsored Exploratory Workshop in April 2007 in Amsterdam. The outcome of this workshop led to the initiation of Marie Curie Initial Training Network GTSnext (2008-2012) funded under the EU 7th Framework Program and the ESF Research Networking Programme EARTHTIME-EU.
The network complements the EARTHTIME initiative that is funded by the National Science Foundation, USA. Scientists from other countries will participate sponsored by their national funding agencies respectively in Canada, Australia and China.
