The 'Solar Facilities for the European Research Area Second Phase (SFERA II)' project aims to provide trans-national access to the most relevant European R&D infrastructures in order to bolster the worldwide Research potential. The CIEMAT-PSA, CNRS-PROMES, PSI-CIESOL and ENEA-Casaccia sites will provide free of charge access to their state-of-the-art high-flux solar research facilities to all interested users groups.

The SFERA II Project is funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Program "Capacities", Specific Program "Research infrastructures".

The deadline for access applications is January 31, 2017.
