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 11 Member States: Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and United Kingdom and three Observers: Greece, 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.
