The EXCITE Network offers you an international research community that has the assets and the resources to advance your research. Unified standards and protocols guarantee a high degree of data quality and integrity. 

We integrate X-ray and electron microscopy techniques applied to Earth materials and make them accessible for new and existing user communities.

What we do:

Build a community of highly qualified earth scientists that are users or potential users of electron and X-ray microscopy techniques.
Develop integrated X-ray and electron microscopy techniques aimed at Earth-materials research.
Provide access to world-class facilities and expertise in the field of electron and X-ray microscopy applied to Earth materials.

We combine open science and knowledge transfer through transnational access and joint research activities.

We drive scientific interactions by connecting people and sharing knowledge by:

  • Workshops
  • Webinars
  • Newsletters
  • Publications
  • Conferences
  • Open data sharing 
  • Technology partnerships

Curious to learn more?

Twenty-four European facilities for electron and X-ray microscopy are joining hands. To better understand Earth and planetary materials and to together unveil the secret codes hidden under our feet. Curious? Like to learn more? Interested in gaining access to our EXCITE Imaging facilities?
