Advantages of the competitive open access
Users who access ELECMI’s singular instruments through the competitive open access procedure (proposals evaluated as A) will benefit from:
- Granted time in singular instruments
- Priority of use in the equipment compared to access on demand
- Document accrediting the access granted to the user
Proposals evaluated as B are not granted with time although they will be queued on a waiting list. In case of cancellations of proposals evaluated as A or changes in the circumstances, they might be granted with time. Otherwise, the proposal may be sent to the next call (the user is advised to follow the referees’ suggestions for an improved proposal).
