Access to Magnet time

The four large infrastructures within this I3 project (LNCMI Grenoble & Toulouse, HFML, HLD) represent the totality of Europe’s large high field infrastructures. They serve a very active European research community of around 550 scientists, working mostly in solid state physics, but also in materials science, chemistry and biology.


In the context of this FP7 project, the four laboratories operate a joint TNA program, which gave full access to their installations and all accompanying scientific infrastructure to qualified external users, together with the necessary support from their scientific and technical staff, at no additional cost to these users.

Calls for TNA proposals were widely published twice per year. All proposals, from internal and external users, were evaluated by a common Selection Committee. This Selection Committee didn’t only decide on the scientific merits and feasibility of the proposals, but also on the infrastructure in which the proposals could be most efficiently realized. This approach guaranteed that the available European high field capacity has be used for the most promising access requests and that these have optimally executed.

Eleven calls for proposals have been launched during 2009-2013 inviting proposals for research requiring access to one of the large installations for high magnetic fields collaborating within EuroMagNET II.

Report and acknowledgement

To justify the use of the valuable and expensive high magnetic field facilities, and demonstrate the scientific output, short reports describing the outcome are requested within three months after completion of the experiments.
The achievements should be clearly described in not more than 250 words AND THE REPORT BE SUBMITTED TO THE INFRASTRUCTURE WHICH PROVIDED THE MAGNET-TIME.

European user groups granted access under the EuroMagNET II have to acknowledge the support of the European Union in all resulting publications with a phrase like “Part of this work has been supported by EuroMagNET II under the EU contract number 228043”.
