While being in turbulent times, we have decided after an inevitable delay due to the current situation, to officially start accepting applications for access to iNEXT-Discovery facilities! We are thus happy to announce to the wider research community this website and welcoming applications. We are posting to the email lists, and social media, so please help us to spread the word!
Please do note, that while regardless of current corona-measures external researchers are more than welcome to apply for access and we expect reviewing of incoming proposals to proceed as normal, most facilities are currently not operational, and it is uncertain when they will open again to deliver access and to receive visitors.
We will not be providing a detailed overview of the status of all facilities, as the situation is changing almost daily.
Having accepted applications in our access pipelines will help both our scheduling and yours. Our facilities can arrange experiments for approved user projects to be executed immediately after local policies allow.
Importantly, please note that applications addressing SARS-CoV-2 and/or Covid-19 and mentioning this in the title will be funneled towards rapid review. Operational facilities will prioritize such projects if they can be accommodated; do not worry if the facility is closed or open or if it has the required safety protocols: just send us your idea!
Safety issues that might emerge with specific projects will be addressed and discussed case by case after scientific approval.
