ARIA by Instruct
ARIA is a collection of cloud services provided by Instruct to research infrastructures, facilities and user communities within structural biology and related fields. ARIA is free to anyone who is in an Instruct member country, and can be set up and tailored to your exact needs within a few hours.
The ARIA cloud service can be customised and tailored to your needs, including restyling of any aspect listed below to merge seamlessly into place. Below is a list of some of the key features provided by ARIA that can be simply and effectively customised to your requirements.
Full proposal submission and administration system that allows you to simply manage user submissions pre-award and post-award. Full granular control over each step of submission, management, review, approval, post-approval and reporting are available to all users.
Already have your own submission system? Integrate ARIA today
Integrating ARIA into your own submission system is simple, and can allow users to import existing proposals from ARIA into your local managment system simply and easily. See how with the demo:
With ARIA managing access and scheduling within your facility can be done quickly and easily. We can also facilitate a submission system specific to you which can be fed directly into the single-point scheduling system.
Your community can be hosted within ARIA allowing you to configure your own hub of activity, with news, events, jobs and forums to engage with your users.
Data Access APIs
If you need to integrate ARIA data, proposals or booking, you can access that through a simple, well documented, API. Use the tools documented here and contact aria [at] structuralbiology.eu for your access key. We are actively developing a number of central data portals that will help streamline the process of accessing and processing
ARIA has a number of users around the world who represent key organisations within structural biology.
Tassos Perrakis - iNEXT Deputy Coordinator
ARIA has been crucial for getting a diverse set of services to the iNEXT infrastructures. The ability to customise application forms, the tools that enable transparent rapid review of applications and for reporting, are only a few examples for what ARIA allows us to achieve, setting a cornerstone for success in our Horizon2020 project!
Reinout Raijmakers - Bijovet Center Managing Director
By using the access management system ARIA the EU project iNEXT was able to very rapidly start providing access to their facilities.
Jan Steyaert - Structural Biology Director VUB
Dave Stuart - Instruct Director
Integrative structural biology infrastructure is powerful but can be complex to navigate for users and really tough to manage, ARIA is a real step forward and has allowed us to streamline processes in the Instruct hub without getting in the way of the science.
