TARI is the acronym for Transnational Access to Research Infrastructures. It is one of the activities that make up the Integrated Infrastructures Initiative "Strongly Interacting Matter" (acronym: "HadronPhysics"), financed by the European Commission and coordinated by INFN.

The objective of TARI is to provide researchers from the European and Associated Countries with free access supported by the European Commission to the major research infrastructures in Europe.

The access to the Frascati National Laboratories (LNF) is implemented within the HadronPhysics project. This project includes three blocks of activities: networking, research projects and transnational access.

Founded in 1955, the Frascati National Laboratories are the oldest and largest laboratories of INFN, the Italian agency devoted to fundamental research in nuclear and subnuclear physics. The LNF cover an area of 140000 m2 and are located about 20 km from the centre of Rome. They can be easily reached by car, by plane (two international airports), by bus and by train.

The access to LNF includes all the infrastructural, logistical, technological and scientific support that is normally provided to external researchers given access to the infrastructure.
