Indicate whether the application concerns the replacement of existing research equipment with equipment of the same type (or a newer version), the extension of existing research equipment or the purchase of new equipment (e.g. introduction of a new technique) and explain.

Description of the requested research equipment (max. 1,5 pages)

Describe the requested research equipment with all its technical specifications.
Mention whether or not comparable research equipment is already available at Ghent University in general and in the immediate environment of the laboratory of the applying research group in particular. If so, please specify to which extent the applying research group has access to it and explain why own research equipment is really needed or an added value.

Usage and potential users of the requested research equipment (max. 1 page)

Indicate which potential users/research groups at Ghent University will be able to use the requested research equipment and in which context (research/education/academic services). Explain briefly.

Qualifications of the proposed research group

Context and strategy with regard to the proposal (max. 1 page)

Situate the requested research equipment in the context of the different relevant research topics that the applying research group is already studying or will study in the future. Other research themes that belong to the expertise of the team can also be listed here. If the topic, for which the equipment will be purchased, is entirely new for the research group, this shift in topic should be concisely explained and motivated.
The promoter and the co-promoters have to complete this section separately.

Other elements in support of your application (max. 0,5 pages)

Mention special capacities or opportunities of the requested equipment that support the application (for example innovative character of the equipment, exceptional high efficiency of the device, etc...)
