Instruct-ERIC is a pan-European distributed research infrastructure making high-end technologies and methods in structural biology available to users.
Our aim is to promote innovation in biomedical science and operates on a non-economic basis within the scope of the ERIC Regulation.
Instruct-ERIC is comprised of 10 Member States: Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia and United Kingdom and four Observers: Greece, Spain, Sweden and EMBL as an Observer International Organisation.
Instruct-ERIC provides open access to cutting edge structural biology, specifically supporting research that uses integrated approaches and technologies. It operates with the following principles: a) scientific excellence is our priority in the services we provide and the research we support; b) transparency, equality and legality is the cornerstone of our operational model.
Instruct began in the European Research Infrastructure Preparatory Phase of the ESFRI roadmap, followed by a transitional phase and into the operational phase from 2012. Instruct was recognised as a Landmark Project on the 2016 ESFRI Roadmap.
Access to the Instruct infrastructure, expertise and methods is available to all researchers from Instruct Member countries.
For basic or pre-competitive research (users agree to publication of data; access is funded by Instruct)
On a service basis for commercial use (user access is on a fee for service basis; no obligation to disclose or publish data)
Structural Biology is most powerful when integrated approaches, combining multiple technologies, are used. Instruct is the single portal delivering all the technologies needed in one place.
