To facilitate research on COVID-19, CERIC has set up a dedicated Fast Track Access to a selected number of instruments. The dedicated Fast Track Access will allow access to the selected instruments for research related to the COVID-19, without the necessity to undergo the regular evaluation procedure, and be scheduled within one month from the submission of the proposal, based on the feasibility evaluation performed by the facility. Instruments available: >>Nuclear magnetic resonance facility in Ljubljana: - ASKA – 600 MHz NMR Spectrometer: - LARA – 600 MHz NMR Spectrometer: - MAGIC – 600 MHz NMR Spectrometer: - DAVID – 800 MHz NMR Spectrometer: >>TUGraz facility: - SAXS light scattering laboratory @ TUG: - SAXS Beamline@Elettra (if available): >>SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Centre in Kraków - Titan Krios G3i Cryo Electron Microscope: Please note that since these facilities do not have a special bio-safety accreditation, each project applicant is expected to consider this fully when submitting a proposal and in the later stage samples, and to disclose all data relevant for safety of the staff at the individual facility. Only samples guaranteed as non-harmful and with no ability to cause or transfer viral infection can be accepted for research. Due to the travel restrictions in place for several countries, remote access will be preferred. Proposals have to be submitted through the VUO ( After registration/login, follow the dedicated link “Submit a new FAST TRACK related to COVID-19 research”. For more information visit or contact
