Research Accelerator

The Research Accelerator is a short training programme giving early career researchers an on-site introduction to the technology/facilities available through INFRACHIP. For each RA, 6 to 8 participants will be invited.  

INFRACHIP will sponsor PhD students and early-career postdoctoral researchers to attend advanced nanoelectronics technology training courses. This will give them a clear insight into nanofabrication and outline how they can benefit from the INFRACHIP technologies to accelerate their own research. 

An expected outcome of the programme is that sponsored researchers will apply for access at any of the facilities to enhance their studies.

  • Between 2 to 3 days of training at one of the access providers.
  • Discovery of the facilities through visits, lectures on a given topic, discussions with the local experts
  • All cost covered (travel, accommodation and meals)
  • PhDs
  • Young career researchers (meaning about two years maximum passed since you obtained your PhD)
  • You must not be based in the country of the provider (INL is an exception to this rule) Example: a Swedish applicant who is a PhD student at Warsaw University of Technology is not allowed to apply to a Research accelerator at CEZAMAT in  Poland, but they can apply to one at CHALMERS in Sweden.
  • Participants that already applied can apply again to another RA but should keep in mind that priority will be given to those who never attended.

When a Research Accelerator is planned, we will publish it together with the application form on this page. 

If you wish to participate, you will simply have to fill in the application form (identity, motivation, and a CV will be required), then an INFRACHIP panel composed of local staff will make a selection.

Small tip: Don’t tell yourself you have no chance to be selected, if the theme of the RA is important for your research or work and you are motivated, you should apply.
