The Joint Research Center (JRC) announced that it will open four of its European facilities for nuclear reaction and decay data measurements in Geel. Such measurements help to make nuclear reactors and the handling of nuclear waste safer, and enhance radiological protection for citizens and the environment.

The calls are addressed to external users from academia and research organisations, industry, SMEs, and more in general from the private and public sectors, and include the following facilities:

  • MONNET, Tandem accelerator based fast neutron source (EUFRAT) 
  • RADMET, Radionuclide Metrology laboratories (EUFRAT)
  • GELINA, the JRC Neutron Time-of-Flight Facility (EUFRAT) 
  • HADES, Underground laboratory for ultra-low level gamma-ray spectrometry (EUFRAT)


Application deadline: 15 September 2021
