Transnational Access

 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, travelling to perform transnational access projects funded through Laserlab-Europe had to be postponed.

In the course of cautiously restarting our activities, remote access is offered to several of our labs during the coming months. If possible, access projects are carried out by the host lab's staff with no external user present in the lab, but supervising the experiments remotely.

Remote access can only be granted when the Principal Investigator and the host facility have reached an agreement on how to proceed. The projects will have to strictly respect the following rules:

  • Remote Access must be based on a strong and auditable involvement of the user(s).
  • The user(s) should be directly involved, usually on a daily basis, via video link, and must actively participate in the different steps and decisions during the experiment.
  • Proofs of such involvement (e.g. minutes of the video discussions on the lab books) shall be kept for audit purposes. The remote users shall fill a form certifying the amount of remote access provided to them (available from the host facility).

You are invited to discuss remote access options with the following facilities: CEA-LIDYL, CLF, CLL, CLPU, CNRS-CELIA, CNRS-LOA, CNRS-LP3, CUSBO, FELIX, FERMI, GSI, HZDR-ELBE, ICFO, LENS, LLAMS, LLC, MBI, ULF-FORTH, VULRC.

Users are encouraged to apply for access. Research proposals for implementation in person on-site or remotely are welcome at any time.

Call for proposals

Laserlab-Europe offers unique research opportunities to scientists and industry from all over Europe and to a limited extent also to scientists from outside Europe. Access is provided

• to world-class laser research facilities,
• to a large variety of inter-disciplinary research, including life sciences,
• free of charge, including travel and accommodation.

Access is provided on the basis of scientific excellence of the proposal, reviewed by an external and independent Selection Panel. Priority is given to new users. A typical access project has a duration of 2 to 4 weeks. Applications for longer visits are highly exceptional.

Details about the submission procedure can be found here. Applicants are encouraged to contact any of the facilities directly to obtain additional information and assistance in preparing a proposal. Applications for access are possible anytime with the exceptions listed below under specific calls.

We particularly welcome young scientists and scientists who have never used lasers in their research before. Laserlab-Europe strives to promote gender equality in scientific research and specifically encourages applications from women.
