The Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure

The Europlanet 2024 Research Initiative aims to promote innovative, international research in planetary sciences. One way this is done is by providing fully funded Transnational Access (TA) data acquisition visits to state-of-the-art analytical facilities. Two such facilities are hosted by the Centre de Recherches Pétrographiques et Géochimiques (CRPG).

Ion Probe Facility (IPF) The CRPG is the only analytical facility in Europe to host two large radius ion-probes, which are used for high resolution and high precision in situ isotope analyses of extra-terrestrial, geological and environmental samples.

Stable, Rare Gas and Radiogenic Isotope Facility (SGRIF) This facility comprises three analytical platforms at CRPG, which together offer visitors a wide range of possibilities for conventional and unconventional stable, radiogenic and helium and neon isotope analyses.

Projects related to Earth sciences, as well as extra-terrestrial studies, are welcome. Applications from European countries with limited analytical means are particularly encouraged. Funding is also available for applicants outside of Europe. Early career scientists, including students, as well as technical personnel and industrial partners are all welcome to apply. Selection criteria include both creativity and feasibility, so it is essential to contact the host laboratory to assure that the proposed work is doable prior to submitting an application.

The next call for proposals will open in November 2020 and close in early January 2021. Updated information will be provided on the TA webpage.
