  • Central European Research Infrastructure Consortium

CERIC is a research infrastructure integrating and providing open access to some of the best facilities in
Europe, to help science and industry advance in all fields of materials, biomaterials and nanotechnology, with a focus on energy materials and life sciences.
It integrates leading national research institutes into a unique international infrastructure, having its
statutory seat in Trieste – Italy, and its nodes distributed in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary,
Poland, Romania and Slovenia. In each country, a Partner Facility (PF) ensures access and outreach to
all national scientific communities and to users from all over the world, who compete for free access to
over 60 techniques available through a single entry point and based on the use of electrons, ions, neutrons and photons for the analysis and synthesis of materials. CERIC’s varied offer is complemented by the participation to the open access programme by a number of Associated Facilities, offering access to other complimentary state of the art techniques and support laboratories in France, Greece and Italy.
CERIC’s services are also open to commercial users on market-based conditions.

Our contribution to IMPRESS
