History

At the end of 2016, CORBEL organized the 1st Open Call for Research Projects. It generated a lot of interest among European scientists and attracted over 30 project applications. Among all eligible projects, 21 were finally accepted as CORBEL user projects, following careful scientific and technical evaluation. Encouraged by the positive feedback we received and the promising outcome of the 1st Open Call, we decided to launch a 2nd Call. This way, even more scientists can take advantage of the services and technologies participating RIs offer and can benefit from common service provision to drive the generation of excellent research results. During the 1st Open Call, we have learned a lot about application procedures, project workflows and harmonized access provision, to name but a few. Based on this experience, we adapted and improved the set-up of the 2nd Open Call in some critical aspects. We are happy to receive your feedback, if you would like to share some thoughts or observations with us!

Representative for many other projects, we would like to highlight three of the projects that were accepted in the 1st Open Call. We hope that the presentation of these three 'success stories' can help to illustrate how such CORBEL Open Call projects are actually working in practical terms.

Dr. Maria Correia, Saliva Tec (Portugal)

Prof. Anastassis Perrakis, Netherland Cancer Institute

Dr. Alexey Koval, University of Lausanne
