Academic scientists from outside the member countries have two routes:

a) Funded Collaborative proposals with an applicant from an Instruct Member country. Proposals submitted through this route must include at least one co-applicant from an Instruct member country, and must include an agreement between all co-applicants on proportional accreditation of the work in publications and data ownership. Contact us for more information.

b) Pay for access. The fee levied will be at an 'academic rate' which is paid directly to the Instruct Centre.

Commercial Users: Any scientist from a commercial pharmaceutical or biotechnology company can apply.

1. Pre-competitive (non-proprietary) research: The proposers must agree to publication of data arising from the access (a publication delay can be negotiated to allow Intellectual Property and patent processes), and the academic fee will be levied by the Instruct Centre.

2. Proprietary research: Users own the outcome of the work and there is no requirement to publish. A commercial fee will be levied by the Instruct Centre. Intellectual Property issues must be agreed before commencement of the access.
