The 4th SFERA-III access campaign opened on 1st November 2021, including access to CNRS PROMES solar facilities in France.
This call for projects provides free access to 43 installations of 14 solar research infrastructures in 8 countries, for both 2022 and 2023.
As previously, PROMES-CNRS offers access to 12 solar furnaces and associated experiments (including yours, as needed), one solar tower and one parabolic trough with a thermocline.
The 4th SFERA-III campaign is open until 31 January 2022. The selected projects will benefit from 1 to 4 weeks of free access to the chosen facilities for a team of up to 2 persons. Moreover, travel, accommodation and subsistence costs are reimbursed by the project’s budget.
