Trans-national Access Programme

User groups from outside Germany applying for access to a beamline involved in an Integrating Activity funded by the European Commission may request financial support for their travel expenses. The request for funding from a trans-national access programme has to be indicated in the proposal form.

Eligibility criteria:

User groups with the majority of group members working in an EU member state other than Germany or in an Associated Country are eligible for funding.

Please contact the user office for specific questions in this context.
