CINR Funding Opportunity Announcement

Each year, the NSUF seeks proposals that will utilize NSUF irradiation, post irradiation examination, and beamline capabilities through the Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (CINR) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). NSUF Technical Leads can be found on the Contacts page. Through the NSUF CINR workscopes, NSUF provides no cost access to world class capabilities to facilitate the advancement of nuclear science and technology. In addition to access to state of the art facilities, the NSUF provides technical assistance including the design and analysis of reactor experiments.
