EOSC-Life Training Call Opportunity
This call is for training on topics relevant for EOSC-Life*. Proposals can be submitted for funding to support the following activities (not mutually exclusive).
- Development of new courses or other training activities
This would typically provide funding for personnel developing new training activities or adapting existing training to the needs of EOSC-Life; this could include face-to-face courses, e-learning courses or stand-alone content such as video/podcast.
- Delivery of courses or other training activities
This would typically provide funding for venue related costs such as catering and room rent or some support for the travel of trainers
- Capacity building
This would typically provide funding for any activity that supports the reach of existing courses, shares best practice and knowledge exchange, coordinates activities with other EOSC-related projects. This could include training new trainers or staff visits between Research Infrastructures. This could provide funding for venue related costs such as catering and room rent or some support for the travel.
With this Training open call EOSC-Life offers support without any restriction with respect to the training modality. Training courses can be face-to-face, online or blended courses. Courses may be organised in collaboration with non-EOSC Life partners given that the rationale and added value can be demonstrated.
EOSC-Life aims to address topics relevant across Research Infrastructures and foster close collaboration and exchange among Research Infrastructures. Therefore, proposals should have at least two Research Infrastructures as partners in the application.
* For ideas of EOSC-Life relevant training, please refer to D9.1 “Final report of analysis of the training needs of different EOSC-Life users”. Suggestions not explicitly covered in D9.1 may also be eligible please contact WP9 leads to discuss before completing your proposal.
Upgrade of the workflow for cryo-electron tomography and microscopy
The CIISB Cryo-electron microscopy core facility at CEITEC Masaryk University is expanding its services in the sample preparation for electron microscopy. The facility has recently acquired high-pressure freezer Leica EM ICE for vitrification of bulky biological specimen (up to 200 mm thickness). In addition, the freeze-substitution unit Leica EM AFS2 for resin embedding of the high-pressure frozen samples and the ultramicrotom Leica EM UC7 with the adapter for cryo-ultramicrotomy were purchased in order to provide the facility users with the complete workflow for preparation of thin section samples for both room-temperature electron microscopy and cryo-electron microscopy.
