Access to ISA
ISA welcomes applications, from national or international groups, for access to any ISA research facility.
Access to ASTRID/ASTRID2
Who can apply?
Anyone interested in carrying out research using one of the beam lines on ASTRID (and soon also ASTRID2), either from academia or industry, may apply.
- ISA is a member of the transnational access programme, CALIPSO. From the beginning of 2013 we will be able to support users from EU member and associated states with an allowance for travel and subsistence, with beam time free of charge. For more information regarding this funding visit this page.
- Users from outside of Europe are also welcome to apply for access, we are unable to provide you with any funding for your visit, but the use of experimental facilities will be provided free of charge.
- Danish users are also not supported under the CALIPSO programme, but are requested to submit proposals in order to allow us to plan the user schedule.
How to apply?
Every year we make a call for proposals asking potential users to submit an application for time on one of the facilities at ASTRID. The proposals are peer-reviewed by a panel and you will be informed of the outcome shortly afterwards.
There is currently no open call for submission of proposals for beamtime on ASTRID (or ASTRID2), we expect the next call for proposals to be in the Autumn of 2013.
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 ASTRID beamlines before, we recommend that you contact the relevant beamline scientist before submitting a proposal.

In addition let us urge you to draw the attention of any potential new users to the ASTRID synchrotron radiation facility and all the possibilities that ASTRID and ASTRID2 present.
Once you have completed your proposal please send it via email to Kate Andersen .
A link to the application form and more details about the current call for proposals can be found here.
