Advisory Boards for the Research Infrastructures at HZDR

The following research infrastructures at HZDR are open to external users,

Detailed information on the application for access to these infrastructures is available from the corresponding websites.
All user proposals are evaluated by international advisory boards.
Scientific excellence is the predominant evaluation criterion.
As HZDR is striving for encreasing the fraction of women in science, of young researchers and of new users these target groups are particularly encouraged to submit proposals.
