For information about the first EXCITE2 call, which is open until 22 May 2024, please click here.

open access

The EXCITE Transnational Access programme provides coordinated access to 24 imaging facilities in nine countries. Access will be provided on a per call basis and a scientifically based review process.


The call criteria, proposal guidelines and participating facilities will be made available prior to a call opening. Academic and industrial users that fit the call criteria can apply for free-of-charge facility access by submitting a proposal.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the facility of choice to discuss the technical feasibility of their proposal prior to final submission.

After call closure, in the review phase, proposals that passed the technical feasibility check are reviewed by an independent TNA Review Panel based on predefined selection criteria.
