NFFA proposals for DESY NanoLab

The research project 'Nanoscience Foundries and Fine Analysis' (NFFA) is a project funded by the European Community's H2020 framework program and has received funding from the EU's H2020 framework programme for research and innovation under grant agreements NFFA-Europe (n. 654360 from 1/9/2015 to 28/02/2021) and, currently, NFFA-Europe-Pilot NEP (from 1/03/2021 to 28/02/2026)

Thanks to the new Horizon 2020 Pilot project NEP, innovated and upgraded services will be provided starting from Summer 2021.

The goal is to provide coordinated access to infrastructures to carry out comprehensive projects for multidisciplinary research at the nanoscale extending from synthesis to nanocharacterization, theory and numerical simulation. NFFA•EUROPE enables coordinated access to infrastructures on different aspects of nanoscience research that is not currently available at single specialized ones and without duplicating their specific scopes.

Within this framework DESY provides access to the DESY NanoLab.
For detailed information on regulations, proposal submission and deadlines please visit the NFFA website.

After approval of your NFFA proposal DESY NanoLab will contact you and inform about access dates and how to prepare your experimental stay via DOOR.

All experiment participants have to register as user in DOOR and absolve the online safety training and send the signed certificate as indicated on the printout of the certificate. It is recommended to do this well before the start of your experiment to avoid any delay.
