Application and selection process (ELI-ALPS)

Submission and review

Proposals should be submitted online.

The proposal submission is continuous. After submission the proposal will be evaluated and, if approved, access time is expected to be allocated between 3 and 8 months after the submission.

We encourage all applicants to discuss the proposed experiments with the User Office including the beamline staff prior to the submission of the proposal.

If the result of the technical feasibility and safety assessment by ELI-ALPS allows, the proposals will be reviewed by an international scientific expert panel. In this phase, a main review criterion will be how the experiment will explore the advanced technical opportunities offered by the research technology equipment.

The decision of the reviewers and the outcome of the feasibility assessment will be communicated to the proposers by the User Office.



As the experiments will be performed during the “ramp-up” period of the facility and also serve the optimization of beyond the state of the art research technology equipment, please note that ELI-ALPS cannot guarantee either the full functionality or the maximum stability of the systems. All efforts will be made to ensure successful experiments and prevent any inconvenience, but ELI-ALPS reserves the right to reschedule or cancel an experiment on short notice.
