ISIS neutron and muon instruments are free to use for academic and industry researchers, provided results from experiments at ISIS are published in the public domain.
New users are always welcome at ISIS and we are constantly encouraging new areas of research that can flourish. ISIS scientists and the User Office can help you with your beam time proposal, and all ISIS users receive a high level of support during experiments.
ISIS has had EU funding to support European researchers. This funding was available up to round 15/1, and details of this can be found below. The EU has currently removed this funding in Horizon 2020, and so from round 15/2 onwards it is no longer available.
Beam time allocations at ISIS are highly prized and in great demand. A clearly written proposal for an experiment at ISIS can set you apart from the crowd and greatly increase the chances that the Facility Access Panels will recommend you get allocated beam time.
We give you hints and tips on writing the perfect proposal.
