How to apply for Transnational Access


Step 1 – Initial contact

Contact the facility coordinator for the facility you are interested in with brief details of your proposal. This step will ensure that your experiment is doable and that you are eligible for TA support before you go through the formal application procedure.

Facility Coordinators contacts:
Research Infrastructures for Nuclear Physics (WP2)
Research Infrastructures for High Energy Accelerators (WP3)
Research Infrastructures for HEP Detectors (WP4)

Step 2 – Experiment proposal Submission (if applicable)

Please follow the instruction in the Call of Proposals for given facility

Step 3 – Proposal evaluation and beam time allocation (if applicable)

The experiment proposal will be evaluated by the facility advisory/supervisory committee. You will be informed about the recommendations and about the beam time scheduling of your experiment, if accepted

Step 4 – Application for the TA support

The User group leader (spokesperson of the experiment) should fill:

  • the application form (Word, PDF) for transnational access;

Please contact the facility coordinator with any questions you have about this step. Once completed send your application form and the file with information about the research group to the given facility coordinator.
In case of troubles to access the forms, please send an email to euro-labs@lists.infn.it.

Step 5 – Selection Procedure

The selection of user groups and experiments is primarily the responsibility of the facility coordinator, acting with approval of the User Selection Panel. Selection criteria are specified here: link. You will be informed whether and to which extent your request was approved.

Step 6 – Access and reimbursement

Reimbursement is handled by each facility, in line with facility rules. Users should complete a confirmation of transnational access form, as well as a facility-specific reimbursement form and return them to the facility coordinator. Details of reimbursement can be found on the information page for each facility.

Step 7 – Publications

Publications are required to acknowledge the EURO-LABS project: This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 101057511 (EURO-LABS).
