Call for Projects – INBS Access to national research infrastructures
The field of Life Sciences has undergone major developments over the past two decades. The change of scales, both in spatial and temporal resolution, and the integration of data from a wide variety of sources, as induced by the development of technologies, have revolutionized the exploration of life. These technologies call for expensive investments and specific know-how, carried out by highly qualified personnel, having led to the creation of common infrastructures such as research infrastructures (IRs) open to the entire scientific community.
The Institut des Sciences Biologiques (INSB) from Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) is launching a call for projects to fund full access to the national infrastructures in health and biology « INBS Access to national research infrastructures ». This call aims to encourage new teams to use the services offered by Research Infrastructures to help their research project. The objective is to demonstrate the significant impact of these services to improve the quality of their results (resolution, reproducibility, change of scale, etc.) or to help remove technological barriers.
Project eligibility and selection criteria
- The scientific leader of the project should preferably be in a unit mainly attached to the INSB.
- Access to the infrastructure must be fully implemented before 31/12/2022 (deadline for the use of funds)
- The scientific project must be a project in the process of being finalized.
- Access to infrastructure must unlock or accelerate the project. The start of a scientific project is not eligible for this call.
