CORBEL 2nd Open Call for Research Projects
The CORBEL partners are launching a 2nd Open Call for research projects to meet the prevailing need for combined service provision from multiple research infrastructures across Europe. Taking on board lessons learned from the 1st CORBEL Open Call launched in 2016 and the services running since then, this will continue to provide all academic and industrial scientists in Europe with the opportunity to accelerate their research.
Successful applicants will be offered open access to cutting-edge technologies and services available at research infrastructures working in fields such as biobanking, translational medicine, clinical research, curated databases, systems biology, mouse mutant phenotyping, marine model organisms, advanced imaging technologies, high-throughput screening or structural biology.
The access modalities vary between CORBEL partner institutes. In general, access can be provided on site or virtually, and experiments are either performed by you, the user, or by staff at the facility (or a combination thereof). CORBEL funds will not be given to successful applicants directly. Instead, costs for travel to partner sites will be reimbursed (up to €5,000) and access to service providers will be granted without access fee (extra costs for consumables may apply).
This Open Call is not a source for funding your research at home, but for funding your access to excellent facilities, pioneering technologies and innovative services!
CORBEL support will cover:
- Costs of research infrastructure staff providing the services
- Costs for instrumentation
- Limited financial support to cover your travel and accommodations costs
Deadline: 31 August, 2018.
