Currently there are eleven countries who have signed up as members of the Instruct European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC). Each country pays an annual membership fee, which allows scientists from those countries to submit their proposals to gain access to the service/technologies catalogue, apply for internships and R&D pilot project funding, and access expert training.
Member countries are shown in the table below. Click to view centre information, funding bodies and contact details for the country representatives.
Instruct-ERIC services are available to researchers from non-member countries through collaboration or ‘Pay for Access’. You would apply by registering and submitting a proposal in the usual way, and we would serve as a broker to send your request to the Instruct Centres. Alternatively, we would refer you to other funding sources for research visits, for example iNEXT. For more information about participation in Instruct activities by scientists from non-member countries, consult our eligibility page.
Some European countries partner with Instruct-ERIC through the Instruct-ULTRA project, with a view to joining Instruct-ERIC in future. In other countries we have a contact point for Instruct enquiries. Click in the table below to find a contact person who may be able to advise about future country membership for Instruct-ERIC.
One of Instruct-ERIC’s aims is to foster international collaboration in structural biology. Partnerships have developed whereby Instruct-ERIC offers training and shared expertise in instrumentation technology, research techniques and administration. Click below for country details.
