The Research Accelerator is a short training programme giving PhD and early career researchers an on-site introduction to the technology/facilities available through INFRACHIP.

Such a programme was defined to give them a clear insight into the nanotechnology field and outline how they can benefit from the INFRACHIP technologies to accelerate their own research. Moreover, by doing so, INFRACHIP significantly boosts research and innovation capabilities, aligning with the objectives of the European Chips Act.

On May 22nd-24th 2024, the first RAP was concluded at Hellenic Mediterranean University (HMU). It focused on Advanced Ink Formulation and Printed Techniques for Emerging Flexible Electronics. Participants gained contextual understanding through an inspiring Solar Park Tour and engaged in hands-on sessions focusing on Dispersion Preparation via Liquid Phase Exfoliation (LPE) and crafting Functional 2D Material Inks.

It is planned to have RAPs on a continuously basis. So don’t hesitate to check out the dedicated page on the website or follow us on LinkedIn to be informed!

Discover the Research Accelerator Programme


In May 2024, our Transnational Access programme opened! It targets PhD students, academics, researchers, SMEs and industrial researchers who are working on tomorrow’s next generation of semiconductor chips: analyzing samples, testing new materials, or challenging sustainability in the field of semiconductors.

Are you interested?

INFRACHIP provides EU-funded, cost-free access to over 130 advanced technologies.

Begin by exploring our Showroom to discover the variety of technologies and access providers available.

Once you’ve identified your needs, complete a brief enquiry form to tell us about yourself and your project.

Upon receiving your application, our team will contact you to discuss the specific technology that suits your project. We will also discuss of the length of your visit (if you wish to come!) and details on how to proceed best.

After finalizing these details, you will be welcomed by one of our access providers, who will facilitate your research.

Among the Access Providers, you can find the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), Tyndall National Institute, CNRS FMNT, NCSR “DEMOKRITOS”, JOANNEUM RESEARCH, UNINOVA, Hellenic Mediterranean University CEZAMAT WUT, AMO GmbH, and Chalmers University of Technology.

Last month, the INFRACHIP Consortium held its first in-person meeting since the initial Kick-off Meeting, gathering members from various partner organisations at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal.

Each partner had at least one representative to present new ideas and objectives for INFRACHIP. Indeed, this event marked a significant step forward in advancing the project’s objectives and fostering collaborative efforts!

Hosted by INL, the meeting served as an important opportunity for partners to discuss their specific needs and ensure the high quality of Access for INFRACHIP users. The agenda was packed with presentations on the progress of each Work Package, as well as discussions on future perspectives for the INFRACHIP project. In addition to the productive meetings, attendees were given a tour of the INL facilities, providing insights into the advanced research and development environment.

These sessions allowed participants to deepen collaborative discussions and keep improving INFRACHIP for users!


During the Consortium Meeting, we had the chance to gather impressions and words from several members of our team!

For example, Giorgos Fagas – from Tyndall National Institute and coordinator of the project – shared an important message for PhD students, postdocs, academic researchers, and SMEs. He highlighted that INFRACHIP grants access, at no cost, to state-of-the-art infrastructures and technologies at different European locations. The process is simple: by submitting a technical enquiry, one outlines his own project’s needs and engages in discussion with relevant experts. Then, one determines the most suitable access options with the interface team – whether it be for a specific duration, virtual, or in-person. Including recognition of INFRACHIP in someone’s results helps spreading the word about this opportunity.

Among the access providers, INFRACHIP counts Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), which is a leader in research and education across technology, science, shipping, and architecture, all driven by a vision for a sustainable future. The local node, Myfab Chalmers, offers an extensive platform for micro- and nanofabrication, featuring approximately 190 tools within a 1250 m² cleanroom facility. Two particularly strong areas of expertise at Chalmers are in microwave and photonic components, as well as quantum components.

Through the EU-funded INFRACHIP initiative, you can apply for access to Chalmers’ state-of-the-art services and technologies at no cost, enabling you to advance your research or projects in sensors and related fields.
