Open access to Joint Research Centre (JRC) Research Infrastructures for researchers
- News 29 January 2018 1065 hits
Similarly to the NFFA project in which we participate, the calls are for researchers who would like to use research infrastructures that are not available in their own centre, and are aimed to enhance the mobility and the collaboration within researchers and industries.
The JRC offers access to its non-nuclear facilities to researchers and scientists from EU Member States, candidate countries and countries associated to the EU Research Programme Horizon 2020. For nuclear facilities, the JRC will open to EU Member States, candidate countries (on the conditions established in the relevant agreement or decision) and countries associated to the Euratom Research Programme.
Offering access to visiting researchers is part of JRC's strategy to:
- enhance dissemination of scientific knowledge;
- boost competiveness;
- bridge the gap between research and industry;
- provide training and capacity building.
- nuclear safety and security (Euratom Laboratories);
- biosciences/life sciences;
- physical sciences;
In a pilot project, three facilities in Ispra (Italy) with the necessary infrastructure to host visitors will offer access through dedicated calls in the fields of safety and security of buildings and of nanobiotechnologies. Other JRC facilities in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands are planning to gradually provide access after completion of the pilot phase in 2017-2018.
