The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), through CNPEM, provides financial assistance to external users both from Brazilian institutions located outside the state of São Paulo and from foreign institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean. The financial support consists in:
Support for Transportation: Reimbursement of expenses related to airline tickets purchase or to ground transportation and reimbursement for travel expenses, like those ones corresponding to the use of a private motor vehicle;
Support for Accommodation: The accommodation is located on the campus of CNPEM. It is designed exclusively to host researchers, technicians, fellows, or trainees who are performing regular activities in the laboratory for a fixed period. Due to the limited space in the guest house, rooms are subject to availability If no room on-site is available for the requested period, the amount spent on off-site housing will be refunded by CNPEM.
Support for Meals: Lunch at the CNPEM restaurant during the experiment period is provided by CNPEM. Lunch on weekends (when the CNPEM´s restaurant is closed) will be refunded with the price paid at the CNPEM´s restaurant upon receipt presentation.
