Since many environmental challenges are of a planetary nature and that research developments on one continent may be useful on other continent, collaborations between infrastructures of different continent are necessary. NEON in the US and TERN in Australia are the two non-European infrastructures closest to AnaEE.

Contacts and collaborations have been initiated with these infrastructures the past couple years. The COOPEUS project (COOPeration EU-US), in particular, establishes collaborations between international environmental Research Infrastructures (RIs) in Europe and the United States to promote information and infrastructure interoperability across research domains.
