The Budapest Neutron Centre (BNC), the largest research infrastructure 
in Central Europe operates the 10MW Budapest Research Reactor and provides
excellence-based open access to the national and international user 
community to the experimental stations.

The BNC user program currently includes 14 (thermal and cold 
neutron-based) instruments, to carry out research in physics, chemistry, 
biology, materials, medical and cultural heritage sciences.

Experiments of granted proposals may be performed in-person or remotely. 
Please check further details at www.bnc.hu

Do not hesitate to submit your proposal now, and indicate in your 
proposal if you choose the remote experiment option.

We encourage potential users to contact the respective instrument 
responsible (https://bnc.hu/?q=contacts) before application. They will 
be glad to assist you to submit your proposal in due time.
