Electron and X-ray microscopy Community for structural and chemical Imaging Techniques for Earth materials

Understanding earth materials is critical to creating a sustainable, carbon-neutral society due to their involvement in many vital processes. The EU-funded EXCITE project, comprised of 15 European institutions for electron and X-ray microscopy, will enable access to high-end microscopy facilities to develop community-driven technological imaging advancements that will strengthen and extend the current implementation of leading-edge microscopy for earth materials research. EXCITE will integrate joint research programmes with networking, training, and transnational access activities to enable both academia and industry to answer critical questions in earth materials science and technology. As such, EXCITE will develop correlative imaging technologies and provide access to world-class facilities to particularly new and non-expert users that are often hindered from engaging in problem-solving microscopy of earth materials.

Opening of the calls: 1st April 2024.
