Technical Review of the Proposals

After the submission and before the PAC meeting, the technical feasibility of the proposals (in terms of beam availability, intensity, energy, target, status of the accelerators, readiness of the experimental setup, radioprotection limits, accident safety and prevention) will be rewiewed by an internal LNL committee.
The spokespersons will be notified about the technical evaulation of their proposals about 10 days before the PAC meeting.


The HORIZON2020 ENSAR2 Grant Agreement nr. 654002 will officially end on February 28th 2020.
An extension of six months has been requested to the European Community and is, at the moment, under evaluation.
In the present situation, it is not possible to guarantee the Transnational Access financial support for the period covered by the next LNL PAC.
