On-demand Training

A training project provides dedicated training on topics in theoretical spectroscopy (theory, methodology, software, etc.), delivered to individuals or groups, at the user's site, an ETSF research group, or at another suitable place. Proposals of scientists from any public- or private- sector organisation and from any country are welcome. They may be submitted at any time. Proposals are evaluated every two weeks.

guide for proposers
It is important that you read the Guide for Proposers before submitting a proposal.


First contact with the ETSF: You are not yet in contact with an ETSF scientist. You would like to know if the ETSF could implement a training project at your request.

To submit a Consultancy proposal, you will be asked to create a website account, enter your contact details and enter your question into an on-line form (800 characters max.).
An answer will be sent you by e-mail within 10 days.

Submitting a proposal

You have discussed with an ETSF scientist, you are ready to submit a proposal.

Proposals for training projects may be submitted at any time on this web site. Please use one of the templates provided below for the written part of the proposal.

To submit, you will be asked to log in, enter basic details into an on-line form, and upload a PDF document describing the proposal project itself, based on one of the templates provided below (1 or 2 pages).


Please user one of these forms to present your training needs: OpenOffice; MS Word; LaTeX.

Criteria and Evaluation Process

Evaluation criteria are (1) the scientific excellence and (2) the relevance with respect to theoretical spectroscopy. Proposals are evaluated every two weeks and those approved are then carried out by the ETSF.

  1. The Internal Training Panel evaluates the admissibility of the proposals, according to the evaluation criteria stated above. ETSF Beamline coordinators constitute the Internal Training Panel.
  2. The ETSF call coordinator verifies the ETSF capabilities in terms of resources for accepted proposals and informs proposers of the outcome of the call.

Step by step explanations may be found in the Guide for proposers.

Statistic reports about training proposals are done every six mouths, together with proposals for collaborative research.
