Open Access & Acknowledgements

Rules and conditions for providing services by the Czech Centre for Phenogenomics (CCP)

The CCP supports its users by providing tailored research and research services, training, advice on selection of suitable instruments and methods for a project, on project design/execution, and on evaluation of data.  CCP provides access mainly to expertise, services, and partially instrumentation on an open, non-discriminatory, and transparent basis. Access is granted to all registered users until the operational capacity of the research infrastructure is exhausted.

The CCP provides open access as:

  • Access to regular CCP services with service fees / costs following CCP internal funding rules

This is the main access mode that CCP applies to the majority of users. The pricing policy differentiates whether the user is coming from academia or industry, or requires conditions that do not fulfil the open access mode of data management (for instance, for purpose of patenting (IP issues), product development etc).

The service fee may include:

  • the costs of consumables
  • the additional user support or expertise provided by CCP staff
  • costs not eligible under our open access policy or relevant CCP fundings
  • Calls for project proposals with costs covered up to a full price of the service announced by CCP or international consortia (transnational access).

CCP provides a free access scheme usually in calls or as an exception for high quality or high need and excellent projects, defined not by simple access to instruments/equipment but by their complexity. CCP uses this scheme in the form of open calls, which are announced through different channels. This scheme is heavily dependent on available funding and therefore has limited availability.

  • Collaborative projects with non-profit users (research institutions, universities, hospitals, etc.)

This approach is used in particular when a publicly funded research centre, university or other non-commercial entity wishes to enter into a long-term complex collaboration with CCP. CCP contributes by its expertise/instruments to the collaboration, while the users fund their own experimental and analytical work. The intellectual property arising from such projects is usually shared proportionally between the respective collaboration partners.

  • Cooperation services for commercial organisations (contract research)

These services range from single parameter analysis (for example glucose level) to multi parametric analysis using panels from clinical biochemistry, immunology, cytokine levels etc. The preclinical pipeline can be also tailored from more physiological assessments across the whole CCP portfolio. These serviced are provided under a full-cost mode.

  • Cooperation for technology and expertise development

Upon proposal, this specific access and service is evaluated by the director and the executive board of CCP. It is used under conditions that the output serves to expand or improve the expertise and service portfolio of CCP.

Please contact us for more information about our open access policy, services and price offers tailored to your particular needs.

The prospective users of CCP are requested to register to be able to use our services. Users are obliged to acknowledge the CCP and IMG in any output (publications, patents) and public presentations created by using the CCP instrumentation or expertise.

Please use these acknowledgements in your outputs:

A) Principal acknowledgement (applicable for all publications including any service or data provided by CCP except EMMA services)B) EMMA services acknowledgement for mouse models provided from EMMA repository hosted at CCP
C) Complementary acknowledgements
based on devices used and involvement of CCP staff
