pMedGR will be an “open access” infrastructure
Access to the Infrastructure will be available to both Internal and External users, and the services will be provided on a first come-first serve basis. Prices for services will be determined on a cost recovery basis and such that they are competitive in relation to international standards in order to facilitate access and achieve maximum benefit for regional and national users. It is envisioned
that in long term the quality of services and specific operations will be such that International users will be attracted as well. Income generated by service provision will be used towards implementation of activities such as covering operational costs, upgrade of equipment and infrastructures, support of networking and transnational access activities.
A fraction of services will be offered "free of charge", modeled after FP7 Transnational Access activities, but with focus on regional users, with limited financial means for covering the expenses on their own. These free access units are expected to boost research productiviry and innovation in the area, by supporting projects that have the potential to lead to personalized medicine proof of concept applications.
