Application and fees


The facility is open to all Swiss and international scientists. New projects should be submitted online: here.

Projects already started should submit online a follow-up every year using this specific form.

There are usually 2 calls for proposal per year (deadlines: early June and early December). Submitted projects will be reviewed by a scientific steering committee, composed of 10 members from different Earth Sciences domains and from different swiss academic institutions.


Due to the new SNF accounting, the fees are now being subdivided between:

  • Consumables, which are charged at a fixed daily rate;
  • Assistance with the analysis (including data processing); which is an hourly fee.

Fees are updated every years. Please contact to get a quote before submitting a project.
