The aim of EISCAT is to provide scientists with access to radar, and other, high latitude facilities of the highest technical standard to study the physical processes in geospace, in the high latitude atmosphere, and in the coupling between the high and low latitudes and altitudes. Experimental programmes include Common programmes and Special programmes that are organized by the EISCAT members. You can find information how to use EISCAT data here.

All researchers that work at a research institution in Norway can apply for observation programmes through the national EISCAT consortium. If you work in Norway and want to apply for observation time, please contact:

Radar time administrator: Associate Professor Lisa Baddeley (

For users outside of Norway and outside the EISCAT membership, there is an Open Programme granting observation time to researchers based on the scientific merit of their proposals. If you want to apply through the open programme you find information here.
