THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY ACCESS PROGRAMME TO LLB : NMI3
LLB has been recognized as "Large Scale Facility" by the European Union in the frame of the Human Capital and Mobility (1992), Training and Mobility of Researchers (1995), Improving Human Potential (1999), 6th (2003) and 7th (2009) framework programmes. This has allowed to receive a considerable number of individual european users (more than 400 since 1993). Up to now, more than 250 publications have come from the experiments supported by the HCM, TMR-LSF, IHP, FP6 and FP7 programmes.
LLB has been selected in 2012 as a large facility within the Neutron Muon Integrated Infrastructure Initiative. The new contract (NMI3-II EC-GA 283883) runs for 4 years, from 2nd february 2012. This program brings together 18 partners from 12 countries, including 8 research infrastructures. Within the NMI3 activity, LLB has received funds for Transnational Access, foreseen for support of external LLB users coming from EU Member States or Associated States. The EU funds provide free access to the LLB Neutrons facilities and provide support for travel and subsistence expenses for usually one young scientist per experiment. Upon consultation with LLB, the stay at LLB can be extended for preparation of experiment and data reduction.
In the frame of the NMI3 Access Activities,20 world-class neutron scattering and imaging instruments are opened to all scientists from European and Associated States (except France).
