EU’s Joint Research Centre to open more of its labs to external researchers

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is extending its open access initiative to energy and transport research laboratories in Petten, the Netherlands, and nuclear research facilities in Karlsruhe, Germany, inviting researchers from member states and countries associated with the Horizon 2020 research programme, to apply to conduct experiments at these facilities by 30 September.

The move follows the first round of the open access initiative, in which nearly 100 eligible proposals were received from 92 research institutions. Since the JRC began to open up facilities in July 2017, scientists from 21 EU and three neighbouring countries have been running experiments in 12 of its laboratories in Geel, Belgium; Ispra, Italy; and Karlsruhe.
