Open access to JRC Research Infrastructures - previous calls

Relevance-driven access

The relevance-driven access is exclusively dependent on scientific and socio-economic relevance at European level. It is based on a peer-review selection process following a call for proposals. Projects accessing JRC facilities under the relevance-driven mode are only charged the additional costs associated to such access.

Nuclear calls: Actinide User Laboratory (ActUsLab)

Nuclear calls: European research infrastructure for nuclear reaction, radioactivity, radiation and technology studies in science and applications (EUFRAT)

Nuclear calls: Laboratory of the Environmental & Mechanical Materials Assessment (EMMA)

    The laboratories are used for the mechanical performance characterisation, life assessment and qualification of structural materials for present and next generation nuclear systems. It includes test machines and auxiliary equipment for creep, tensile and fracture tests for different test specimen including small punch and small punch creep tests. Supporting 3D profilometry, x-ray tomography, microstructural analysis and data management tools can be offered.

    The Micro-Characterization Laboratory (MCL) is dedicated to the experimental investigation of materials performance in terms of microstructure and micromechanics. The lab provides insight into the complex coupling between microstructure, its defects and the mechanical behaviour of small volumes of metals, ceramic materials, polymers and composites of interest to the safe operation of nuclear installations and non-power nuclear applications.
