  • Who can apply?
    Financing from the EU means that rules set out in the H2020 Program have to be followed, as detailed in the User Access Charter. Briefly, in order to apply for Trans-National Access to an infrastructure, the persons appearing as participant in a project should be from a country part of the European science area and from a country different to the one in which the facility for which access is requested in the project.
  • How to apply?
    The main part of the proposal is to be included as a PDF file based on the project submission template document (Submission form). The first step is therefore to complete this document with all the relevant information. This document will be kept confidential and used only for project evaluation purpose and, if accepted, for the execution of the project and evaluation of its outcomes. Once this is done, submission of the proposal can be completed on the electronic infrastructure. The information entered in these sections may be used for reporting on the activity of the network, and thus should not contain confidential information.

EU FT-ICR MS - END USER SCHOOL #1 - 20-24 August 2018 - JOENSUU

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

EU FT-ICR MS - Short Course #1 - 5‐7 March 2018 - Rostock

Rostock - Germany

Subject : Atmospheric pressure ionization techniques for high resolution mass spectrometry of complex samples.



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).

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 731077. This publication [communication] reflects the views only of the author, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.
