The NCS is an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded Mid-Range facility, its purpose is to provide access to crystallographic instrumentation, and expertise that goes beyond what is available at any single institution.



Scope and Objectives

The purpose of the General Interest Group for Young Crystallographers (GIG-YC) is to represent the interests, needs and concerns of European Young Crystallographers. In particular the GIG’s goals are:

  • To incorporate the YCs into the ECA community and promote activities at scientific, organizational and social levels
  • To construct an appropriate scenario for the exchange of ideas and information relevant to YCs
  • To act as a breeding ground for new projects and collaborations between different groups initiated by YCs taking their first steps into independent research


Membership of this Group is open to all European graduate students as well as postdoctoral fellows or other young scientists who are starting their career in crystallography or in any related area. To join the group you must be an individual member of the ECA. For registration please click the “Join Group” button in this page.
