The USP meets twice a year, usually in December and June, and has been appointed on 10 December 1999 with the task of evaluating the scientific proposals submitted to the LNL Director for research experiments to be carried out at CN and AN2000 Accelerators.

The USP writes out a list of priority experiments according to their scientific merit. On the basis of these indications the LNL Director prepares the list of approved experiments. The CN and AN2000 Coordinators then prepare the beam time schedule on the basis of the USP's evaluation and Director's decisions, and according to the requests contained on the "Beam Time request" forms.
