Call for Proposals

A collaborative research project addresses a specific scientific problem: ETSF scientists work in close collaboration with the proposer, employing computational resources and scientific software provided by the ETSF. Proposals of scientists from any public- or private- sector organisation and from any country are welcome. They may be submitted at any time. Consultancy proposals are evaluated every week. Collaborative Research proposals are evaluated twice a year (Next call deadline: 16 April 2015).

An answer will be sent you by e-mail within 10 days.
