NNUF invites user access applications

The sixth quarterly “call for access” for NNUF facilities is now open. This is an opportunity for any UK-based university researcher (or employee of other organizations eligible to apply for UKRI funding), and their international collaborators, to apply to use these facilities for free. The closing date is 30th November 2021, and this call covers access commencing primarily during January – March 2022. Experiments applied for under the NNUF access scheme can last up to 6 months in length.


The following facilities are accepting user applications as part of this round:

Given COVID, many of the facilities accepting applications for this call are able to facilitate both “in-person” and “remote” access (i.e. facility scientists conducting experiments on behalf of externals). Please get in touch with the contact listed on each facility’s page, to find out more.

For more information about the access scheme and NNUF as a whole, please consult the NNUF website.

Please feel free to contact Francesca McGowan, NNUF Administrator (francesca.mcgowan@materials.ox.ac.uk), with any questions about the access scheme. For further information about individual NNUF facilities, please contact the facility directly using the contact details provided on the facility pages of the NNUF website
