Frank H. Allen International Research and Education Programme
Who is eligible?
Eligibility applies to academic researchers in the countries on this list who can demonstrate financial need.
How can I apply?
For information about how to apply, please see the Application page.
How long will the FAIRE award last?
An award will cover contributions for three years. We ask that if you secure funds from your institution or another granting agency that covers access to the CSD, you begin making contributions for the CSD-Enterprise license.
What usage information will I need to provide?
We ask that you let us know the number of students and faculty members who are active or occasional users of the CSD-Enterprise software and what schools or departments benefit from the software. Additionally, we ask that you provide a list of all publications resulting from work done with the CSD and its applications.
What else do I need to do?
FAIRE award recipients must cite the CSD and acknowledge the programme in any publications that result as a use of CSD-Enterprise. Recipients are encouraged to provide a summary of research or educational experiences with the CSD for posting on our blog, news site or social media channels. We ask that recipients provide at least one summary during the three years of the award.
Can I request a grant to cover my use of GOLD?
Yes. The FAIRE awards cover access to all of the applications included in CSD-Enterprise.
I am interested in inorganic structures too: can I get access to the ICSD?
FIZ Karlsruhe established the FIZ Karlsruhe Advancing Crystallography Education (FACE) Programme to support research and education in structural chemistry in eligible countries through access to the ICSD. Read more about the FACE programme, including the eligibility criteria and application, in FIZ Karlsruhe website.
