Through the Continuously Open Research Announcement Opportunity for IBER (CORA IBER), ESA will provide scientists with an opportunity to conduct research necessary to advance knowledge relevant to the effects of space radiation in the area of Life and Physical Sciences.
For GANIL facility, the number of hours dedicated to ESA users have to be discussed with the facility PAC once the beam scheduling is completed. Due to construction activites, the beam time available for this facility is limited with respect the regular opening schedule (from 5 to 9 months a year).
The facility is dedicated to basic research and industrial applications and has several beam lines. It is also equipped with a radibiology laboratory (LARIA platform) within the nuclear installation area, where external users can perfom their experiments. Animal irraditions are not permitted.
