Free Access for European Soft Matter Scientists to World-Class Instruments

What is ESMI?
ESMI is THE new Research Platform for the European Soft Matter Research Community. Within this network, 17 European partners have pooled their infrastructure for studying Soft Matter to make it available as a platform for all researchers within the EU free of charge in order to conduct experiments, develop new systems and materials and use existing supercomputers. An additional goal is to further improve the infrastructure by means of joint research. The European Commission is funding this project with a total of € 7.8 million up to the end of 2014. ESMI is coordinated by Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany.

How can I make use of ESMI?
All Soft Matter scientists within the EU are cordially invited to take advantage of the ESMI access programme by submitting a proposal via the user-friendly ESMI web portal. Proposals will be evaluated by the ESMI Review Panel. After a proposal has been accepted, all expenses associated with the use of the ESMI infrastructure, including travel, accomodation and subsistence costs will be covered by the ESMI project (up to 2 persons per proposal).

Soft Matter scientists within the EU who would like to join the ESMI community are welcome to register on the ESMI web:, or contact for more information.
