Mobility program for access of mineralogical facilities around Europe – Call for proposals:


Now in its 4th iteration, the SYNTHESYS initiative returns as SYNTHESYS+ (PDF file with details of the call), and our Access programme launched on 1 February. The first call for Access closes on 12 April, 17.00 UK time.

Previously, SYNTHESYS Access programmes have enabled more than 4,130 research projects – resulting in more than 4,700 research outputs and c. 50,000 researcher days funded.

The SYNTHESYS+ Access launch is also shared on Twitter & Facebook.
