QualityNano Transnational Access Call

The EU project QualityNano offers as part of the „Transnationalen Access (TA)" fully funded access to Top European Nanoscience Facilities for scientists from the European nanosafet- and nanomedicine research communities. Accompanying technical support and training are also offered. Application deadline for the NEW Call for proposals is 14th November 2014.


15 major European research sites offer a cfull range of services and equipment from standard nanomaterials, tuition in best practice, laboratory support and training, and a suite of protocols for all aspects of nanomaterials processing and characterisation in a biological context.


Average visit duration is 4-10 working days per transnational access facility. The project covers all expenses for successful applications, including travel, accommodations and consumables for stays up to a month.
