Dear Scientist,

European-funded Integrated Infrastructure Initiative.

SYNTHESYS Project funding is available to provide scientists
(Users) based in European Member and Associated States  to
undertake short visits to utilize the infrastructure (namely
the collections, staff expertise and analytical facilities)
at one of the 20 partner institutions (see full list below)
for the purposes of their research.  The 20 partner
institutions are organised into 11 national TAxonomic
Facilities (TAFs). TAF Users will be hosted by a TAF staff member.

The 11 TAF institutions represent an unparalleled resource
for taxonomic research offering:
·	Collections amounting to over 337 million natural
history specimens, including 3.3 million type specimens
·	Internationally renowned taxonomic and systematic skill base
·	Chemical analysis, molecular and imaging facilities

Proposals will be welcomed from high calibre researchers
seeking access for short-term visits.

SYNTHESYS is able to meet the Users' costs for:
·	Research costs*
·	International travel
·	Local accommodation whilst based at the TAF
·	A per diem to contribute towards living costs

* Research related costs including: bench fees and
consumables (including molecular biology at some TAFs).

The application form will be available online from Monday 2nd
August with a first deadline of Friday 17th September 2004.
Deadlines will be arranged at approximately 6-month interval
thereafter until 2009.
