Transnational Access to the Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro (LNL) of INFN can be supported within the HORIZON2020 ENSAR2 Grant Agreement nr. 654002.
The Transnational Access is provided jointly with the Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (WP17 TA2 LNL-LNS).

The ENSAR2 grant also allows financial support for those research teams having the majority of users not working in EU or associated countries, but the support is limited to 20% of the total amount of units of access provided under the grant.
Please visit the web page for all the details concerning the Transnational access to LNL and LNS and to download the application form.
The application form for ENSAR2 has to be attached in the LNL on-line proposal submission page.
