HZB User Committee and Scientific Selection Panel

User Committee

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

HZB Scientific Selection Panel

To strengthen the synergetic use of neutron and synchrotron radiation, HZB has implemented the common HZB Scientific Selection Panel dealing with proposals for neutron and synchrotron radiation beamtime at BER II and BESSY II in joint sessions.

To this purpose, the HZB Scientific Selection Panel is organised in eight 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 either neutron or synchrotron radiation beamtime are requested to choose the appropriate Scientific College for their proposal upon online submission.
