Types of Proposals

There are various types of proposals available at SPring-8. The following are a few examples:

General Proposal:

General proposal is the most common type of proposal. We have two proposal calls and review sessions per year. Up to 10% of total beamtime is allocated to proprietary general proposals.

Urgent Proposal:

Urgent proposal applications can be submitted at any time even during the current half-year research term. The submitted proposals are reviewed promptly. This system is designed for users with urgent needs to conduct experiments of great scientific significance.
