Open Access to JRC Research Infrastructures Calls


The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) opens its scientific laboratories and facilities to people working in academia and research organisations, industry, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and more in general to the public and private sector.

The JRC offers access to its non-nuclear facilities to researchers and scientists from EU Member States and countries associated to the EU Research Programme Horizon Europe. For nuclear facilities, the JRC opens to EU Member States and to countries associated to the Euratom Research Programme.

Offering access to visiting researchers is part of JRC's strategy to:

  • enhance dissemination of scientific knowledge;
  • boost competiveness;
  • bridge the gap between research and industry;
  • provide training and capacity building.

Scientists will have the opportunity to work in the following fields:

  • nuclear safety and security (Euratom Laboratories); 
  • chemistry;
  • biosciences/life sciences;
  • physical sciences;
  • ICT;
  • Foresight.

The results will also feed into JRC's mission to support EU policymaking.

The JRC is opening access to the following groups of Research Infrastructures:

Nuclear Laboratories:

  • Actinide User Laboratory (ActUsLab)
  • Environmental & Mechanical Materials Assessment (EMMA)
  • European Research Infrastructure for Nuclear Reaction, Radioactivity, Radiation and Technolgoy Studies in Science and Applications (EURFRAT)

Non-Nuclear Laboratories:

  • Energy Storage Research Infrastructures
  • European Laboratory for Structural Assessment
  • Nanobiotechnolgoy Laboratory
