A call for proposals to get free of charge access to EPOS-Netherlands (EPOS-NL) facilities is open from 9 March to 17 April 2022.

The third EPOS-NL open call grants access to the ESL High Pressure and Temperature (HPT) Lab at Utrecht University, the Petrophysics Lab (DPL) at the Delft University of Technology, and the Multi-scale Imaging and Tomography (MINT) facilities at Utrecht University and the Delft University of Technology.

Capabilities offered include X-ray (CT) scanning, Scanning Electron Microscopy, micro-chemical mapping, triaxial compression testing and shear (friction) testing.

Accepted projects can start as early as 1 June 2022 and must be completed no later than 1 December 2022. 

The ESL-HPT lab and the DPL are accessible for researchers worldwide, including the Netherlands. For this call, MINT is accessible for Netherlands-based researchers only. Researchers outside the Netherlands can apply for access to MINT via the next call of the recently launched EXCITE program, expected to open this Summer.
