The aim of Instruct-Unlocked is to advance the implementation of Instruct and to further develop the foundations for financial and operational sustainability of the infrastructure. The Instruct-Unlocked project will achieve this goal by addressing specific objectives: to expand the Instruct user base by engaging with new European and international communities; to improve efficiencies in service delivery to adjust the scale and reliability of the infrastructure. The focus will be on expanding membership to the Eastern European member states and the EFTA countries, integrating their structural biology communities into Instruct activities and providing new opportunities to support research excellence and raise standards. Opportunities for engaging with industrialised countries and developing countries outside the ERA will build on existing international relationships, for example those already established with the Mercosur countries, with a view to expanding the impact of Instruct beyond European borders and contributing at the global level.
