    Be aware that we are a small team that tries to help as
    many researchers and research groups as possible.
    Therefore we have to limit our total work time on each
    request to one week with a maximum of up to two weeks.
    Depending on the request type the processing might take
    a bit longer. We try to setup an initial meeting as early
    as possible.

            All good things must come to an end,
            but our aim is to leave you more equipped and prepared at the end of the consultation process,
            so that you can maintain and support your project for as long as you need to.
