Applying for Transnational Access

Who can apply for Transnational Access ?

Transnational Access within the ENSAR2 programme can be provided to selected ‘user groups’, i.e. teams of one or more researchers (users) led by a ‘user group leader’. The user group leader and the majority of the users must work in a country other than the Netherlands. Note that, in contrast to earlier EU programmes, users from anywhere in the world can apply for access.

Only user groups that are allowed to disseminate the results they have generated under the action may benefit from the access, unless the users are working for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

How to obtain Transnational Access support ?

The wish to receive Transnational Access support needs to be indicated on the beam time proposal form. At the time of the evaluation of proposals by the PAC, a Selection Panel comprising members of the PAC considers the requests for Transnational Access support. The selection of the international users who benefit from Transnational Access support is based solely on the scientific merit of the proposals. All experiments fulfilling the Transnational Access criteria can benefit. However, according to the rules laid down in the ENSAR2 Grant Agreement, priority needs to be given to user groups composed of users who have not previously used the installation and/or are working in countries where no equivalent research infrastructure exists.

What will be supported ?

Travel and subsistence for researchers working at KVI-CART will be (partially) supported in case a proposal that is recommended by the PAC indicates a request for ENSAR2 TA support on the beam time proposal form. However, users from outside the EU or associated countries can not be given travel support.

User group obligations

Researchers receiving funding in the framework of the TA activity under the ENSAR2 contract are obliged to publish the results of their research performed at the facility in the open literature. Users and user groups given access to the AGOR facility in this framework shall acknowledge in their publications that their work was supported by the European Union through the following phrase:

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654002.
