European Network of Research Infrastructures for providing Access and Technological Advancements in bio-NMR

Objective

EU-NMR aims at providing an integrated approach to supporting fundamental research in the life sciences by mobilising the unique tools and expertise available at five Research infrastructures for bio-NMR. The five RI compromise a high quality research environment for European researchers. The partners in EU-NMR strive to expand the application envelope for bio-NMR techniques. To realise the aims, the awareness of researchers should be raised in the life sciences for the benefits that bio-NMR can generate in their research. In addition, there should be collaboration between the infrastructures for bio-NMR operating at the local, regional, national or European level to establish an efficient and cost-effective service network for bio-NMR, an asset for the ERA, and an extended user base in the research community.

In order to establish NMR as an important tool for functional analysis of biological pathways and to integrate the services available, the following tightly linked activities will be executed:
1. Network the RIs for bio-NMR operating at the local, regional, national or European level into an integrated structure with transparent access and mutual referral of users;
2. Provide external users with overall 900 instrument days annually of trans-national access (TA) to the research environment of the core consortium of high-level RIs in EU-NMR;
3. Develop core technologies to increase the scope, application envelope and quality of access for RIs in bio-NMR with respect to:
a. Fast, efficient data acquisition modalities for multi-dimensional NMR to establish an efficient and cost-effective service network;
b. Strategies to exploit hetero-nuclear Magnetic Resonance in Liquids and Solids;
c. Integration and development of solid-state NMR structural data into a common software package with liquids NMR data to provide high-resolution NMR structure and dynamics information.
