All Diamond users who are based at a UK institution at the time of their experiment will be eligible for travel, accommodation and subsistence funding, subject to the criteria below.
Users visiting Diamond from an institution in the European Union may be able to benefit from funding through European projects. This typically requires the Principal Investigator and most of the Co Investigators to be based at an institution in an EU country, excluding the UK. Alternatively, users may be eligible to apply directly to European funding streams and Diamond encourages you to apply. If funding is not clearly available, users should contact the Diamond User Office to find out if Diamond can fund travel, accommodation and subsistence.
Only in exceptional circumstances will financial support be available for users who are based outside the UK or the EU.
Where funding is provided it will be limited to:
Diamond Light Source will load cash directly onto user access cards to cover these costs. Breakfast is available at the Guest House (for those staying) or at the onsite restaurant with lunch and evening meals also being available at the onsite restaurant. Diamond Light Source will not reimburse any claims for food costs except when the card system has not been working, in this case receipts must be provided.
In all cases, claims should be submitted as soon as possible after the beamtime. Claims received more than three months after the end of beamtime will not be processed.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
