The ESTEEM consortium of electron microscopy laboratories for materials science and solid-state physics has been created as an EU-supported delocalized infrastructure (I3) to bring together the major electron microscopy centres in Europe. Its main objectives were to develop networking, to offer transnational access to these centres with specialized and complementary techniques and skills and to upgrade in close collaboration different technical and methodological aspects such as tomography, spectroscopy, holography, detectors, and specimen holders. These efforts were aimed to strengthen the position of European microscopy and to generate new technologies potentially of high relevance in many domains identified as strategic. Following the success of the first program, ESTEEM has been reconducted in 2012 for four more years with an enlarged set of partners.

Le consortium de microscopie électronique dédiée à la science des matériaux et à la physique de la matière condensée (ESTEEM) a été créé comme infrastructure européenne délocalisée (I3) en regroupant quelques centres majeurs en Europe. Trois objectifs principaux lui étaient dévolus : développer des actions de mise en réseau, offrir un accès aux équipements spécialisés dans ces centres regroupant des techniques et des expertises complémentaires, et développer en collaboration étroite certains aspects technologiques ou méthodologiques, tels la tomographie, les spectroscopies, l'holographie, les détecteurs et des porte-échantillons spécifiques. Ces efforts avaient pour but de fortifier la position de la microscopie européenne et de générer de nouvelles technologies d'importance pour un certain nombre de domaines stratégiques. Le premier programme ayant été jugé très positif, l'infrastructure ESTEEM2 a été reconduite pour une période de quatre ans à partir de 2012.
