EU Transnational Access Programme
EU funding for travel reimbursement no more available
FP7 ELISA (Transnational Access Project) has ended on August 31, 2011. Unfortunately the follow-up proposal for EU funding of transnational access to multidisciplinary Synchrotron and FEL users has been rejected by the European Commission. Thus, effective September 1, 2011 the EU funding for travel reimbursement of the users and the user fees for the facility is no more available.
PSI will continue to provide open access for academic users to our photon sources. However, the funding for travel support and daily allowances will no longer be granted
. We will keep you informed about any news concerning this issue. We thank you for your understanding.
Travel Reimbursement for SLS-PX-Users
Eu funding for travel reimbursement available only through BioStruct-X. Please read the instructions
Proprietary/Commercial use of the SLS
A certain fraction of the beamtime at SLS beamlines is reserved for proprietary use. PSI offers these services for proprietary research on a full cost recovery basis. This is handled by the Technology Transfer PSI.
