 Access in a nutshell

EASI-Genomics will provide free-of-charge sequencing and data analysis services to selected projects. Researchers from academia or industry willing to benefit from this opportunity will have to submit complete proposals responding to the EASI-Genomics Calls, through the online application platform established for this purpose. Eligible proposals will be evaluated by external reviewers, and eventually selected and allocated to one of the EASI-Genomics facilities. The sections below summarize the application, selection, and implementation processes.

  • Applicants may come from academia or industry (including SMEs).

  • Applicants should have their home institutions based in EU Member States or Associated Countries as defined by the Horizon 2020 programme, or outside of the EU.

  • Access is transnational only, applicants cannot request access to services only offered by facility(ies) from their home country.

  • EASI-Genomics principal investigators and members of their research groups are not eligible to apply.

  • Applicants are required to provide copies of valid legal and ethical authorisations relative to their research, their samples and/or their data through the ARIA submission platform online upon submitting their application.

  • Applicants agree with the data sharing and publication policy of EASI-Genomics.

  • Applicants whose proposal was selected for funding in a previous EASI-Genomics call for TNA are not allowed to apply to a next call until sequencing and bioinformatics analysis of their funded project has been completed. 
  • Applicants or co-applicants whose proposal was not selected for funding in a previous EASI-Genomics call for TNA are allowed to apply again.
  • For a given EASI-Genomics TNA call, the number of applications that can be submitted as a principal investigator is limited to 1 per research group.
  • Applicants are expected to consider the management of gender and diversity aspects in their research design.
