Information on the facilities offering Trans-national access is available at the project web-site (www.nadir-project.eu). Applicants may identify in the proposal a preferred partner facility to undertake their project. However proposals that do not identify a preferred partner facility are also acceptable. The NADIR executive committee may propose alternative possibilities in case of unavailability for any reason of the requested facility.
Request for eligibility:
Applicants are strongly recommended to submit a request to check for eligibility criteria. The criteria are available in the Annexe III to the grant agreement here.
Application forms are available at the NADIR project Website (www.nadir-project.eu).
They should be completed and returned:
The NADIR TA management will acknowledge receipt of all applications and review all applications for basic selection criteria (eligibility criteria, on-time submission, formal and administrative requirements, completeness). Any applications found to be in breach of the EC rules will be removed. The proposal must be complete and in compliance with the guidelines stipulated in the NADIR Application Form and the Annex III to the Grant Agreement .
Eligible proposals will be reviewed by a User Selection Panel (USP). The USP consisting of at least 50% of external experts will meet every 2 month (see timelines below).
The final decision will be made by the NADIR Executive committee based on the decision of the USP and the agreement of the host platform (and the European Commission when necessary). Users will be informed of the final decision by email by the management team.
The call was launched in December 2009 and will remain open until January 2013, or until Transnational Access funds are exhausted. The terms of reference and eligible topics may change depending on the uptake of Transnational Access, the topic of the projects selected and the availability of capacity within the individual facilities.
