EU_FT-ICR_MS proposal aims to establish a European network of FT-ICR (Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron
Resonance) mass spectrometry (MS) centers in association with a manufacturer and a SME software company. Mass spectrometry (MS) has become the most ubiquitous analytical techniques in use today, providing more information on the composition and the structure of a substance from a smaller amount of sample than any other techniques.
Unlike other analytical techniques, such as NMR, which mainly rely on a unique technology, MS is characterized
by the existence of a large range of mass analyzers. FT-ICR MS is the most powerful MS technique. It offers up to 100 fold higher mass resolving power and mass accuracy than any other MS technique. On the contrary to NMR
community with which the FT-ICR MS shares several features, FT-ICR MS has never been involved in a European
INFRA network and so will be a legitimate candidate to the Integrating Activities for Starting Communities call.
The EU_FT-ICR_MS network includes 10 FT-ICR MS centers from 8 different European countries (Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, and United Kingdom) and 1 third country (Russia), a European FT-ICR MS manufacturer and 2 SMEs. It includes centers equipped with up-to-date FT-ICR MS and expertise which will cover most of the field in which FT-ICR mass spectrometry is involved: BioOrganic & BioInorganic, Cultural heritage, Glycomics, Environment, Imaging, InfraRed Spectroscopy of Ions in the Gas Phase, Lipidomics, Medicine, Petroleum & Coal Oil, Nanoparticles, Organic chemistry, Physical chemistry, Proteomics, Structural biology.
The EU_FT-ICR_MS proposal contains six work-packages which cover all the aspects of the INFRAIA-02-2017 (RIA) Integrating Activities for Starting Communities (WP1 Transnational access; WP2 Training and Education; WP3 Open Data and e-Infrastructure; WP 4 Joint Research Action; WP 5 Dissemination; WP6 Consortium management).
The Project has 4 objectives :
1. Provide the EU academic, SME and industrial communities’ with access to world-class FT-ICR MS centers.
2. Build an EU community of end-users and FT-ICR MS scientists.
3.Open access to data and open source software to the EU FT-ICR MS network.
4. Strengthen the FT-ICR MS application fields by promoting innovative and cooperative research between European FT-ICR MS academic scientists and private companies(instrumentation and software).

Workshops on different "hot" and high interest topics will be organized during the conference. In an informal atmosphere, participants will be encouraged and invited to talk and debate on different angles of a topic. IMSC 2018 workshops are organized from Monday August 27th 2018 to Wednesday August 29th 2018 5:15 pm - 7:00 pm.
The schedule is available on the website http://www.imsc2018.it/workshops.php
Joensuu - Finland
Experience the Unique Atmosphere of Eastern Finland!
The Summer School will be more than just taking a course: it is an excellent opportunity to experience an innovative and international learning environment while creating new networks with your fellow students - and let's not forget about the opportunity to enjoy typical Finnish summer activities in beautiful lakeside surroundings.
Our lively cities and cosy campuses welcome you, so make a smart decision and join us in the middle of (k)nowhere!
This is how UEF Summer School has been experienced: see the video in Youtube
