ISA is a Danish National Facility where research is carried out over a wide range of the natural and life sciences, including fundamental physics, material science, molecular biology and laboratory astrophysics, using accelerators and storage rings.
Access to ISA
Call for ISA proposals - Open!
- There is currently an open call for proposals for beam time on ASTRID2. If you are interested in applying for beam time on one of the ASTRID2 beam lines please read the information
contained in the link below. The deadline for submission of proposals is the 8th of November 2021.
Proposals for beam time in the period January 2022 to December 2022.
ISA welcomes applications, from national or international groups, for access to any of the ISA research facilities.
Apply for free-of-charge access to the AU-SRCD beam line through MOSBRI.
It is possible to apply for TNA through the EU H2020 programme MOSBRI. Proposals are accepted at any time through the MOSBRI website, but this is only applicable for access to the AU-SRCD facility at ASTRID2.

Applications for TNA under the new EU Horizon 2020 INFRAIA programme MOSBRI are now being accepted.
Transnational access (TNA) under MOSBRI will provide free access (paid by the project) to the consortium's laboratories and is especially aimed at young researchers. The AU-CD beamline on ASTRID2 is one of the laboratories open for access, with the coordination and management of all TNA for the network carried out by the AU-CD team.
Apply for TNA at AU-SRCD here. and read more about MOSBRI at ISA here.
The European Union’s Horizon 2020 INFRAIA programme has awarded a 5 M€ infrastructure grant to MOSBRI (Molecular-Scale Biophysics Research Infrastructure https://www.mosbri.eu), a consortium of 13 academic centres of excellence and 2 industrial partners from 11 different European countries, coordinated by Institut Pasteur (Paris, France). In practice, this means that we are opening our laboratories to European researchers, so that they can travel to where the best equipment and the best expertise is. Transnational access (TNA) under MOSBRI will provide free access (paid by the project) to the consortium's laboratories and is especially aimed at young researchers. The AU-CD beamline on ASTRID2 is one of the laboratories open for access, with the coordination and management of all TNA for the network carried out by the AU-CD team.

In 2020 despite disruption due to the corona virus pandemic, ASTRID2 provided 28 weeks of user beam time to the 6 operational beam lines, with normal operation at 180 mA top-up. Machine physics studies are ongoing in order to improve stability and lifetime of the beam. The newest beam line, SGM4, has been commissioned and is awaiting the final installation and commissioning of the endstation.
For information about visiting the facility and how to arrange a tour, please read the information on this page.
