The access to the ECAC is a Trans-National Access (TNA). It is provided by the EU research infrastructure ACTRIS.
TNA to the different ECAC facilities for the single activities can be provided to teams of one or more researchers/users from European and non-European institutions as well as to small and medium size enterprises, including ACTRIS partners and associate partners.
Separate applications have to be submitted for each instrument. Please use the application form, which can be downloaded here.
Use the project number given in the time/call-schedule. Open calls are marked green. Please send the application to the ECAC office at least six weeks before the planned workshop/intercomparison start.
Please apply early because only a limited number of applicants can be accepted for each calibration/intercomparison workshop, as well as for the inter-laboratory and on-site intercomparison and audit activities.
Each application will be evaluated by internal and external consultants based on scientific merit (quality, impact and innovation) and the users' background.
Institutions and SMEs from Germany and France cannot apply for TNA to the WCCAP and the ACMSS, respectively.
The access to the calibration facility is free of charge for accepted applications. Costs for transport of own instruments and travel of users are not covered by TNA funding.
