Dear colleagues,

Proposal deadline is November 1, 2021 and funding is planned to start on July 1, 2022. There is more information on the website of the project management agency DESY (PT DESY).

>ESUO survey on Trans National Access

ESUO is asking all synchrotron radiation users to participate in the survey entitled "Possible impacts of the absence of trans national funding support for the user community" by Sept. 19, 2021. Do you use ESRF, Diamond, Elettra, Soleil and other European synchrotrons? Do you cooperate with international groups that apply for measurement time at German sources and need to fund their travel there? Then you certainly have an opinion on the subject. By participating in the survey, you can support ESUO in its efforts.
