Access to ISA
ISA welcomes applications, from national or international groups, for access to any ISA research facility.
Access to ASTRID2
Who can apply?
Anyone interested in carrying out research using one of the beam lines on ASTRID2, either from academia or industry, may apply.
- We offer the use of the experimental facilities free of charge to anyone who wishes to apply, however there is currently no transnational access programme to support EU users with travel and subsistence.
- All users are requested to submit proposals in order to allow us to plan the user schedule
How to apply?
Every year in the Autumn we make a call for proposals asking potential users to submit an application for time on one of the facilities at ASTRID2. The proposals are peer-reviewed by a panel and you will be informed of the outcome shortly afterwards.We do not currently have an open call for proposals for beamtime on ASTRID2. However if you would like to come and use one of the beam lines and have not submitted a proposal it may still be possbile, as we reserve some time for new/test experiments. If there is time available (see the schedules) you can contact the appropriate beam line scientist to see if we can fit you in.
If you have not carried out experiments on one of the beam lines before, we recommend that you contact the relevant beamline scientist before submitting a proposal.
