FRISBI provides to the scientific community its expertise, including expert staff and high end instrumentation, to perform projects for structural analysis.

The aim of FRISBI is to encourage the use of technologies and methodologies in an integrated manner (e.g. analysis of a system spanning different resolution levels using different techniques). However, applications are also possible for the individual FRISBI nodes where local facilities provide the specifically required techniques. FRISBI is open to structural and molecular and cell biologists from both academia and industry from France and Europe.

Applications for access can be submitted at any time.  A simple, transparent reviewed process will provide access based on its feasibility and resource availability. Users will be required to contribute towards the costs of access. Users will be charged on academic rate if they agree to open publication of results, or in non-academic rate if there is no expectation for open publication of results.

Applications for access can be submitted at any time

Seventh FRISBI call for funded access is open

The seventh FRISBI call for funded access to national structural biology platforms is now open.

·         Access to FRISBI infrastructure is possible for all scientists working in French laboratories. Scientists working at FRISBI centres cannot request funding for access to their local centre.

·         Depending on project size 250-2000 € of support is available as a contribution towards the access costs of each project (consumables, reagents and travel for one person (train or plane ticket no hotel)). The number of awards is limited. The user is expected to cover any additional expenses beyond the award price, please contact the platform ahead of the access.

·         Scientists may visit single or multiple FRISBI platforms for their experiments.

·         The deadline for this round of proposal submission is 27 of September 2021. Proposals should be submitted via the FRISBI online proposal submission system at Once selected, projects should be performed within 12 months.

Once the access to the FRISBI infrastructure is finished, we thank the user to complete the FRISBI user report and send it to

A copy of the communication / publication (pdf) should be sent to FRISBI

Result of the FRISBI access calls with subvention:

In 2020: 22 projects were submitted and all were accepted with FRISBI contribution to the access cost.

In 2018: In a total of 27 projects submitted, all were accepted for access, 21 get a FRISBI subvention. 5 projects were redirected for an Instruct access submission.

In 2017: In a total of 32 projects submitted, 29 get a FRISBI subvention, 3 were not eligible for funding.

In 2016: In a total of 18 projects submitted, 17 get a FRISBI subvention, one was not eligible for funding.

In 2015: In a total of 32 projects submitted, 25 get a FRISBI subvention. 3 were technically not feasible, 2 were not eligible for subvention and one redirected for an Instruct access submission.
