HZB User Committee and Scientific Selection Panel

User Committee

The HZB User Committee collects matters of concern to individual users working at BESSY II, conveys an assessment summary of these matters and suggests appropriate measures to the Scientific Directors. Members are elected annually at the BESSYII@HZB User Meeting.

HZB Scientific Selection Panel

HZB has implemented the HZB Scientific Selection Panel dealing with proposals for synchrotron radiation beamtime at BESSY II.

To this purpose, the HZB Scientific Selection Panel is organised in seven Scientific Colleges, which are grouped according to research fields in order to facilitate discussions on the scientific merit of the proposals.

All users applying for synchrotron beamtime are requested to choose the appropriate Scientific College for their proposal upon online submission.
