• AnaEE France (https://www.anaee-france.fr/en/) is offering the national and international scientific community 22 services ranging from experimental platforms (in controlled, semi-natural or natural environments), analytical and modelling platforms to shared mobile instruments. It was structured through the "Investing for the Future" project's "Biology and Health Infrastructure" program. It received €14m for the 2012 and 2020 period. See also Mougin et al. 2015.
  • AnaEE Denmark has proposed 10 different experimental platforms covering the main land uses in Denmark to be part of AnaEE. The AnaEE Denmark consortium consists of 4 Danish Universities – Aarhus University, Technical University of Denmark, Roskilde University and University of Copenhagen. The consortium has now negotiated with the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science suggesting a total funded budget of €2.7m over 5 years. The consortium is currently awaiting final approval of this funding by the minister. The website www.anaee.dk is under construction.
  • AnaeE Czech Republic is integrated into the Czech national roadmap, together with ESFRI infrastructure ICOS, as a joint project CzeCOS (http://www.czecos.cz/) . AnaEE Czech Republic has proposed all types of platforms to be part of AnaEE infrastructure i.e. enclosed and open air experimental platforms in different ecosystems (agroecosystem, grassland, short rotation coppice poplar, forest), different types of analytical platforms (metabolomics and isotopic laboratories, airborne remote sensing) and modelling platforms. Currently all platforms are under umbrella of Global Change Research Institute which belongs to Czech Academy of Sciences, but after building of new platforms the creation of consortium of more institutes is expected. As part of the CzeCOS project, approximately €0.3m per year is allocated for maintaining and upgrading the platform submitted to AnaEE.
  • AnaEE Belgium is focusing on high-level experimental platforms, both terrestrial and aquatic, most of which are newly constructed. A macroscale ecotron (€5m) was recently opened at Hasselt University, while a similar indoor facility (€8m) is close to being completed at the University of Liège. In 2017-2018-2019 the University of Antwerp will build a terrestrial open-air system and mesoscale ecotron, as well as a small-scale aquatic facility (€3.1m). The Flemish administration is currently studying how the functioning of ESFRI infrastructures could be structurally funded on a long-term basis.
