Please note that due to the end of the ICEI project in September 2023, there are currently no open calls for project proposals.
If you’re a Europe-based researcher from any scientific domain looking for computing, data or Virtual Machine services to enhance your research, then Fenix is for you!
Benefit from the Fenix research infrastructure resources and take your project to the next level. Access to our services is straightforward and free of charge, and evaluation of the applications follows the peer review principles established by PRACE. Access is offered through different paths depending on your field and affiliation.
For any questions regarding access, don’t hesitate to contact us at: icei-coord[at]fz-juelich.de.
Find out about the different paths of access below.
European calls for EBRAINS/HBP-affiliated scientists
EBRAINS/HBP and Partnering Projects members interested in using the Fenix resources can apply via the EBRAINS/HBP allocation mechanism. Further information and the resource request form are available in the Fenix/ICEI Collab.
If you would like to apply, please visit the EBRAINS registration page to request an EBRAINS account, if you do not have one yet.
If you would like to extend the duration of your project, please apply for the project extension via the EBRAINS/HBP allocation mechanism through the electronic project application form.
European calls for neuroscientists not affiliated with HBP
HBP offers in the context of the ICEI project access to the Fenix e-infrastructure. With this call, Europe-based neuroscientists are invited to submit proposals for using these resources for research on topics in the broader scope of the HBP.
Read the full details in the Call announcement. If you are interested, please apply through this electronic project application form. A full guide to support applicants in the application process can be found here.
If you would like to extend the duration of your project, please apply for the project extension via the EBRAINS/HBP allocation mechanism through the electronic project application form
For any further queries regarding the application, contact email@example.com.
European calls for scientists of all research domains
Scientists working in Europe or in European projects in any other research domain can apply to use the Fenix services through the PRACE-ICEI dedicated Calls for Proposals. These calls open every 3 months and, if awarded, allocations are granted typically 3 months after the closure of the call.
You can apply to secure additional ICEI services (e.g. for data storage or interactive computing resources for post-processing of results), even if you are involved in a project which already successfully applied for resources through the PRACE Tier-0 Project Access Call or the Call for Proposals for HPC Compute Resources from DECI (Tier-1).
If you are interested in applying to these calls, please visit the PRACE webpage where you will find more information on the process.
National Calls for scientists of all research domains
You can also access the Fenix resources through the national access mechanisms, associated with the Fenix partners. These calls are typically open to all scientists from the corresponding country - independently of their affiliation with HBP and application domain.
