Please make sure that the project description explicitly states why the requested service is needed.

For the calculation of costs please consider LiRI’s regulation and fees: For expert time like statistical consulting or lab assistance you calculate with working hours (one hour currently 75 CHF).

Costs for the use of lab space and lab equipment are published in the LiRI Wiki. Please also consider the regulations for lab use: LiRI Lab Wiki.
