Joining the VPTN

The VPTN is comprised of core facilities that meet our criteria below for membership. VPTN facilities must:

  • be managed by a dedicated facility manager, who is able to advise clients on technical aspects of their technology, maintain equipment and be point of contact;
  • be open for access by researchers and industry, irrespective of affiliations;
  • have capacity for additional business; and
  • be hosted by a publicly funded research organisation, university or institute

VPTN membership is free. Member facilities will continue to set their own access protocols including rates, and to run their facility as they see fit.

Researchers and industry are able to access VPTN facilities, but do not need to be Network members to do so.

If you would like your facility to join the VPTN, please fill in the form below, and a VPTN Network Manager will be in contact shortly.
