Open access to JRC Research Infrastructures

06 July 2021

The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) will open four of its European facilities for nuclear reaction and decay data measurements in Geel, Belgium. Such measurements help to make nuclear reactors and the handling of nuclear waste safer and enhance radiological protection for citizens and the environment.

The call closes on 15 September 2021 for the following:

  • MONNET, Tandem accelerator based fast neutron source (EUFRAT)
  • RADMET, Radionuclide Metrology laboratories (EUFRAT)
  • GELINA, the JRC Neutron Time-of-Flight Facility (EUFRAT)
  • HADES, Underground laboratory for ultra-low level gamma-ray spectrometry (EUFRAT)

Offering access to visiting researchers is part of JRC's strategy to:

  • enhance dissemination of scientific knowledge;
  • boost competiveness;
  • bridge the gap between research and industry;
  • provide training and capacity building.

Scientists will have the opportunity to work in the following fields:

  • nuclear safety and security (Euratom Laboratories);
  • chemistry;
  • biosciences/life sciences;
  • physical sciences;
  • ICT;
  • Foresight.

The JRC may provide a financial or in-kind contribution to support Users to cover their costs of travel and subsistence (T&S) related to the User stay Days, subject to the availability of funds, personnel and other resources to Users from User Institutions located in an EU Member State.

Examples of ongoing and past collaborations using this instrument can be found in the new Research Infrastructures Brochure.
