access & support
Treesearch provides access to and support for advanced research infrastructure
An important component of Treesearch is to make advanced research infrastructure available for academia and industry. This will expand the relevant knowledge base and thereby contribute to a further strengthening of Sweden’s competitiveness. At each academic node there are a number of different infrastructures, now available for associated researchers within Treesearch at internal price rate. In order to achieve the highest possible quality in each analysis, Treesearch provides support for the implementation and evaluation, in the form of qualified researchers with specialist competence.
The Treesearch nodes provide advanced characterization infrastructure
Obtaining access to infrastructure requires a short on-line application

How it works
The availability of infrastructure in Treesearch is facilitated by coordinators at the respective nodes. Researchers wishing to use an infrastructure submit a short application via the form linked to from this page. A granted application means access to infrastructure and implementation support.
Implementation support consists of time devoted by one or more researchers with relevant specialist competence in order to support experimental work and analysis of measurement data to achieve the highest possible quality.
Implementation support can cover a maximum of 40 hours per project.
The user of the infrastructure accounts for any costs related to the direct use of an infrastructure. The cost is according to the rate applicable to each node (machine time).
After having completed a Treesearch infrastructure project, a brief report is to be presented via this page.
National research infrastructures of interest
Umeå Core Facility for Electron Microscopy (UCEM)
Umeå Core Facility for Electron Microscopy (UCEM) is a joint resource for research and higher education in electron microscopy techniques. Electron microscopy is used for structural and chemical characterization of materials at micro and nano-meter length scales. Medical and biological samples are prepared, imaged and analyzed in 3D. Also, structure biology projects are addressed by cryo electron microscopy.
