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 - Closed!
- The call for ISA proposals for beam time in 2024 is closed. However if you are interested in applying for beam time on one of the ASTRID2 beam lines, then it may still be possible. Please read the information contained in the link below and contact the relevant beam line scientist to see if there is time available.
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.
EU project NEutrons and PHotons Elevating Worldwide Science (NEPHEWS) under grant aggreement preparation.
Together with 22 other synchrotron radiation and Neutron facilities, ISA is participating in the EU project NEutrons and PHotons Elevating Worldwide Science (NEPHEWS). Under NEPHEWS we will
offer free-of-charge transnational access (TNA) to the ASTRID2 beam lines, covering travel and accommodation for eligible users.
NEPHEWS has a special focus on EU Widening countries, Ukraine and Africa, but researchers from all EU member states and associated countries may apply to benefit from the TNA programme.
NEPHEWS is currently under grant agreement preparations with the EC, and we expect to be able to offer access under this program during the first half year of 2024.

In 2022 ASTRID2 provided 31 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.
