Up-coming councils

Spring 2022

Scientific Council meeting: 7 April 2022. No proposal round.

With the upgrade programme well underway, we are aiming to provide a small amount of beamtime to users at the end of 2022 for selected instruments.
Applications for this potential beamtime will be possible via the User Club all year round before the September call deadline.
Unsuccessful proposals will be transferred to the proposal evaluation in November.
More information will be provided via the usual channels in due course.
