The second Instruct call for Research and Development pilot projects and the second call for internships to Instruct Centres are now open
Instruct proposal system provides free access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and technology to support research in structural biology. Our aim is to encourage and facilitate the integrative use of technologies and methodologies that are available at our 15 Instruct Centres around Europe and in Israel.
The Instruct Internship Programme funds research visits of 3-6 months duration to Instruct Centre in Europe. The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with Instruct research groups applying techniques that are not available in the applicant's laboratory. Applications should specifically focus on the benefit to the applicant's research.
Instruct R&D pilot project programme funds small scale pilot research projects in integrated structural biology. A maximum of €20,000 per project will be awarded to support a limited number of pilot studies proposed by researchers from Instruct member countries (BE, CZ, DE, ES, FR, IL, IT, NL, PT, SE, UK). Projects should propose basic or applied research which is preliminary in nature. The intent of this support is to help researchers develop external funding for projects, i.e. the expectation is that a pilot study will lead to a full grant submission. The funds are expected to cover research expenses but not normally salaries.
The deadline for both applications is 5pm CET 11th July 2014.
