TMR funding for access to large-scale facilities

The first call for proposals for RTD activities under the Community's specific programme for the training and mobility of researchers (TMR) was published on 17 January 1995(OJ No C 12 of 17.1.1995, p. 22). This covered all four activities of the TMR programme:

The first call for proposals for RTD activities under the Community's specific programme for the training and mobility of researchers (TMR) was published on 17 January 1995(OJ No C 12 of 17.1.1995, p. 22). This covered all four activities of the TMR programme:

- Activity 1: Research networks;
- Activity 2: Access to large-scale facilities;
- Activity 3: Research training grants;
- Activity 4: Accompanying measures.

A total of 193 proposals were received, in response to this call, in the area "Access to large-scale facilities". Following evaluation, 75 national research facilities have been awarded support worth approximately ECU 63 million in total.

An overall budget of ECU 120 million is available for the "Access to large-scale facilities" activity of the TMR programme. Of the budget remaining following the first call for proposals, ECU 2 million has been earmarked for the second call for proposals to be published in September 1996, and the remaining amount will be spent on the third and final call scheduled for March 1997.

The essential objective of this activity is to provide European researchers with access to large-scale research facilities throughout the European Union. The grants awarded under this first call will allow researchers access to such large, nationally-owned facilities as: astronomical observatories, synchrotron light sources, neutron beam sources, earthquake simulators, supercomputers and facilities for environmental research. The condition of each award is that access is provided to all European researchers on exactly the same terms and conditions as for nationals.
