JRC opens access to JRC research infrastructures
The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) has announced that it opens its scientific laboratories and facilities to people working in academia and research organisations, industry, SMEs, and more in general to the public and private sector. The JRC offers access to its non-nuclear facilities to researchers and scientists from EU Member States, candidate countries and countries associated to 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.
Scientists will have the opportunity to work in the following fields:
- nuclear safety and security (Euratom Laboratories)
- biosciences/life sciences
- physical sciences
The results will also feed into JRC's mission to support EU policymaking.
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.
