Access to Major Research Facilities Program

The Access to Major Research Facilities Program (AMRFP) supported access by Australian researchers from industry, private and public research organisations and universities to major international research facilities that were not available in Australia or to attend overseas strategic planning meetings to secure access to a major research facility.

This program is not currently active. AMRFP was administered by ANSTO and was proudly supported by the International Science Linkages (ISL) program.

The ISL program supported Australian scientists, from both the public and private sectors, to collaborate with international partners on leading edge science and technology (S&T) in order to contribute to Australia's economic, social and environmental wellbeing.

AMRFP operated over the period from 1992-2012 and concluded in 2012.

Access to international synchrotron facilities is managed through the International Synchrotron Access Program (ISAP) which is administered by the Australian Synchrotron.

This program primarily supports travel where time has been granted on an overseas major facility following peer review. Collaboration visits will not be supported unless time has already been granted at an eligible facility.
