Internal Instrument Booking 

ARIA is the cloud-based software that powers proposal submission, technology access and facility management services to Instruct-ERIC and a number of other research infrastructures in Europe. Another service offered by ARIA is internal instrument or machine booking at a departmental or institutional level. 

If your department or institute is using ARIA to manage its internal machine booking, click the link below right to access the calendar and booking systems for instruments at your centre.

Alternatively you can submit a proposal for access through any one of the European infrastructures, by clicking below left. 

Please contact us if you would like to find out more about using ARIA to manage internal machine booking at your department or institution.


Submit a proposal for access

If you are looking to visit a lab outside of your own you will need to submit a proposal for access before you can gain access to machine booking.

Book a local machine

If you want to book a machine local to your lab or one through some approved access continue forward here. Not all facilities utilise ARIA's booking management, so you may want to enquire with either your local or host facility manager as to how best to book your time.

Benefits to using ARIA for Instrument Booking

Remote or visit access: Each of your service/technology within your facility can be configured as either remote or visit access, with individual configurable workflows. Checkpoints can be created and customised for remote access or visits can be scheduled and managed with the user.

Quick start-up: Using ARIA you can get your facility management running quickly and easily. With no need to setup or install any software you can be ready for access the same day.

Calendar overview: Simple but powerful tools are available to quickly schedule and manage your facility to maximise output and streamline access.

User training & permissions: Highly configurable booking permissions intrinsically linked with machine training and access.

Simple notifications: Email notifications of booking confirmations and changes to keep users in the loop.

Many more features: More information about additional features will be added soon
