Financial arrangements

1. ONE EXPERIMENT

ONE-TIME QUOTATION

If you wish to purchase shifts for one particular experiment, we will send you a quotation for a specific number of hours or shifts (a shift is 8 hours of beam time).

The quotation includes terms and conditions regarding such issues such as scientific and technical assistance, confidentiality and data analysis.

The quotation also includes standard matters of payment, cancellations, liability and termination.

INVOICING

After the experiment is complete, we will send you an invoice.

YOUR ACTION

If you accept the quotation,

  1. Sign and return the Acknowledgment 
(included with the quotation) to 
industry@esrf.fr. 

  2. Send a scanned purchase order to the BDO at 
industry@esrf.fr. 


NOTE! Return the Acknowledgment as soon as possible. We cannot begin preparing for your experiment until you return this form.

 

2.MULTIPLE EXPERIMENTS

“OPEN” QUOTATION

If you plan to carry out several experiment sessions, we will send you an "open" quotation that will cover all your sessions. This mechanism simplifies the paperwork considerably (both for you and for us) and can be easily adapted to your specific needs.

  • A sliding scale of prices is applied beginning with the 11th shift purchased (a shift is 8 
hours of beam time). 
 This is valid during a 12-month period, from the date of your first experiment.
  • The quotation is renewed automatically, so no need to renew the quotation each year. 

  • There is no obligation related to this quotation: You may use as few or as many shifts as you wish. 
The quotation includes terms and conditions regarding issues such as scientific and technical assistance, confidentiality and data analysis. 
The quotation also includes standard matters of payment, cancellations, liability and termination. 


INVOICING 


You may choose the frequency of invoicing – either at the end of each quarter, or  after each experiment, as you prefer.

YOUR ACTION


If you accept the quotation, 


  1. Sign and return the Acknowledgment 
(included with the quotation) to
