Call for proposals

The upcoming proposal submission deadline for neutron scattering experiments at BNC is Saturday, 1 April 2017.

BNC with 12 neutron instruments are free to use for academic and industry researchers, provided results from experiments at BNC are published in the public domain.

Proposals must be submitted via the on-line system on our webpage, or you can fill out our proposal form and submit to the You will find all the necessary information's on the right-hand menu.

*SANS will be accepting proposals only in the next round as they over booked (because of the missed cycles) - thank you for your understanding!

Before submitting a proposal for a specific instrument, please contact the appropriate instrument scientist to make sure your research is feasible for that instrument.

CERIC Call for Proposals!


CERIC-ERIC is launching its seventh call for proposals, with a two-steps deadline option:
- March1st, to have a pre-evaluation and improve your proposals according to the feedback received;
- March 30th, recommended only for expert users of all the techniques requested.

In this call, there are 47 instruments available, as well as the opportunity of getting awards for high quality publications and conference presentations. Two CERIC users per experiment can also benefit from the support for mobility.

If you intend to apply for the Infrared beamline (SISSI), please check the new possibilities available for this beamline:

11th CETS


11th CENTRAL EUROPEAN TRAINING SCHOOL on neutron techniques will be held between 8-12 May, at Budapest

CETS provides insight into neutron scattering techniques and their application for studies on structure and dynamics of condensed matter. Comprehensive experimental skills and guidance in result interpretation are going to be conveyed. The school will be a forum for the presentation and discussion of actual research works of young scientists.

Please noted that places are limited and you must apply before 15 March 2017.

Neutronvizsgálat: úttörő technológia a járműgyártás szolgálatában

pgaaAmikor a Ferrari mérnökei a 2000-es évek közepén a Budapesti Neutron Centrumnál – rövid nevén BNC - bejelentkeztek, még senki sem sejtette, hogy kis részben a magyar mérnökök is hozzá fognak járulni Michael Schumacher Forma-1-es pilóta világbajnoki címének többszöri megvédéséhez. Az olasz csapat arra a kérdésre kereste a választ, hogy miért fárad el idejekorán a csúcstechnológiás motor dugattyúja.
