  • 1st step – March 1st 2021 at 17:00 CET, to have a pre-evaluation and the possibility to improve your proposal;
  • 2nd step – March 31st 2021 at 17:00 CET (final submission), recommended only for users that are experts in all the techniques requested.

*What is new in this call?*

CERIC is increasing its capacities in the field of Energy materials. To this end, we will upgrade certain beamlines/instruments during this year in order to improve our services. In the first step, the upgrades will address battery research and we invite the users to check the instruments pages or contact the instruments scientists for forthcoming development.

Additional Facilities available:

Due to an important upgrade, the NAPXPS instrument in Prague will not receive user proposals in this call

Due to the COVID-19 emergency and according to the local evolution of the pandemic, some of the CERIC facilities may propose to perform measurements remotely, through sample mailing. It will be possible to express your availability for remote measurements in the proposal submission form.
