European collaborations

As 'the' European Neutron Source, the ILL is present by definition on the European scene - be it through its coordination and participation in European projects or by the role it plays in the EIROforum, ESFRI and other instances. ILL's activity at European level will ensure Europe remains at the front of the field internationally. The Institute's choices as regards European projects are carefully matched against the priorities of its Associates and Scientific Members. 

A European Project, is a project that is co-financed by the European Commission. Most of the ILL project proposals are submitted in response to the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme calls, such as Research Infrastructures, European Research Council, Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Action (MSCA), Euratom, Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) & Spreading Excellence & widening participation.
 

The ILL’s European Office oversees the participation of ILL in the various EU programs and provides support for the preparation and implementation of EU projects carried out at the ILL. It monitors progress and ensures alignment with the ILL strategy.

  • Fostering Science - Grenoble-based individual support for your proposal submission for your ERC or MSCA proposal submission

The ILL endorses several EU policy requirements. ILL has been the pioneer among the Analytical Large Scale Infrastructures in establishing a Data Policydocument in 2011. This has been supported by the PanData-ODI project (GA no. 283556).

In January 2017 the EU Commission published a Charter for Access to Research Infrastructures in close cooperation with the ESFRI, the e-infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG), and the European Research Area stakeholder organisations. This charter sets out non-regulatory principles and guidelines as a reference when defining access policies for RIs. In this context, the ILL has defined its own User Access policy, defining the principles and guidelines for access to ILL infrastructures and related services.

The ILL endorsed in 2006 together with EIROforum members the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. In 2018 the ILL is willing to officially apply for the "HR Excellence in Research Award" to highlight its current values. For the ILL management this is a further step to showcase its willingness to implement the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R).

The ILL registered in 2019  in the Transparency Register and therewith signed the Code of Conduct in Annex 3 of the 2014 Interinstitutional Agreement which establishes the underlying principles for standards of behaviour in all relations with the EU institutions.
