Framework of access to JRC physical research infrastructures

Access of users to JRC research infrastructures will be regulated by the "Framework of Access to Joint Research Centre physical Research Infrastructures" ('Framework') drafted by the JRC and based on European Charter for Access to Research Infrastructures.

The Framework defines the principles and modalities, including the rights and obligations of the JRC and the user(s), health and safety, security rules, intellectual property rights, data protection, confidentiality, liability and financial aspects, under which the JRC opens its facilities to external users for conducting research, undertaking experimental development and providing education and training through an open access policy.

Access to the JRC research infrastructure is regulated by a Research Infrastructure Access Agreement, detailing the organisation and management of the project and covering any necessary technical and legal aspects

Physical access of users to the JRC will be regulated by the User Access Agreement, signed by the user. The agreement will cover legal aspects including intellectual property rights, confidentiality, third party liability, insurances, the documents to be provided by the user, and the rules of conduct on JRC sites.

Users are encouraged to contact the research infrastructure during preparation of the proposals, in order to assess feasibility aspects related to the capacity of the research infrastructure.
