SPIRIT Transnational Access (TNA)

total user time to be delivered: 13800 hrs
(+5% against original contract)
(46/54 months delivery: 12300 hrs)

estimated number of user proposals: 230
(46/54 months: 204)


low industrial participation (few proposals only)

intra-SPIRIT use < 10%

new users > 75%

strongly interdisciplinary
(however, significant direct industrial cooperation at
infrastructures – up to 30% of total activity)

Industrial Applications and Services

SPIRIT TNA: only little industrial use
3 of ~200 proposals
However: significant industrial services at SPIRIT
infrastructures (up to ~30% of total activities)

Industrial criteria
Non-disclosure: no peer reviewing!
Fast delivery
Nearby partnership (mostly)
Quality control (ISO certification?)
Bilateral cooperation or purchase contracts preferred

Multidisciplinary Applications

SPIRIT towards Horizon 2020 – Bridging the Gap

Continued access to SPIRIT infrastructures
most of the infrastructures will offer free access
no coverage of user travel and local costs
website maintained by HZDR for central application
and allocation of infrastructures
no central evaluation of proposals

SPIRIT JRA and Networking continued under MC ITN SPRITE
Coordinator: University of Surrey, U.K.
Full Beneficiaries: SPIRIT Consortium plus one SME
9 Associated Partners: SME's, Hospitals, IMEC, IAEA
Duration: Jan-1, 2013 ... Dec-31, 2016
Financial Volume: 3.5 Million €
