CERIC call for beam time proposals

CERIC-ERIC, Central European Research Infrastructure Consortium, offers access to more than 50 complementary instruments and two support laboratories, for multidisciplinary research in all fields of materials science and nanotechnology. Researchers from all over the world can apply for access free of charge, upon the condition that results are published and CERIC acknowledged. In addition to the access to the instruments and labs, CERIC offers support for mobility and open access publications, and more.

CERIC-ERIC is calling for proposals for coordinated access to these more than 50 instruments and support laboratories. In addition to the possibility to access several instruments through a single application, we offer support to mobility.  To apply, use the link "Submit a new CERIC proposal" in the VUO at https://vuo.elettra.trieste.it/,  As usual, there will be two deadlines:  

- September 1st, 2021 at 17:00 CET, to have a pre-evaluation and the possibility to improve your proposal;
- September 30st, 2021 at 17:00 CET (final submission), recommended only for users that are experts in all the techniques requested.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the CERIC facilities may propose to perform measurements remotely, through sample mailing. It will be possible to express your availability for remote measurements in the proposal submission form. Remember you can also apply at anytime fo the dedicated COVID-19 Fast Track Access and fast track for feasibility studies, on the available instruments: https://www.ceric-eric.eu/users/open-access/#anchor-2
