ECCSEL ERIC calls for funded access

When we have EU funding available for Transnational Access, information on calls will be made available here. Applications for access will follow the selection procedure route, and undergo peer review assessment by a committee made up of:

  • The coordinator of the project providing the underpinning funding
  • An internal scientific group of relevant ECCSEL ERIC partners (2-3 members)
  • External review panel from industry, academia and research institutions (3 members)


Who can apply?

Transnational Access calls is open to researchers from industry and SMEs across the world. The only condition for funded access, if granted, is the publication of the results with the appropriate citation of the facilities and the local contacts involved. If needed, it can be discussed with us the need to protect results for a given period of time after project end. Please contact ECCSEL OC to get more information on this.

How to apply?

Application for access should be submitted online through the ECCSEL ERIC website.
