The French CRG beamlines (D2AM, IF, FAME, FAME-UHD, FIP) has to make 1/3 of its time available to general ESRF users. The remaining 2/3 of the time is available for researchers employed by French institutions / universities.


General ESRF users should apply via the general ESRF proposal page, using the Standard ESRF proposal box.

To unify the synchrotron experiment offers for the French scientific community, the next proposal session on the CRG beamtime will be done simultaneously with the French synchrotron SOLEIL. The merge of the program committees will allow the users to present a single scientific proposal, reducing like this the number of projects to write. French CRG users should therefore apply via the French SOLEIL Synchrotron webpages

The French CRG secretaries located at the Neel Institute are still reachable. Do not hesitate to contact them if you have questions concerning these procedures:
