RADiation facility Network for the EXploration of effects for indusTry and research



RADNEXT is an H2020 INFRAIA-02-2020 infrastructure project with the objective of creating a network of facilities and related irradiation methodology for responding to the emerging needs of electronics component and system irradiation; as well as combining different irradiation and simulation techniques for optimizing the radiation hardness assurance for systems, focusing on the related risk assessment.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101008126.

Transnational Access

Transnational Access to irradiation facilities is the cornerstone of the RADNEXT project. More than 6000 beam time hours are awarded during the four years of the project, in more than 20 different facilities in Europe and beyond.

Both academic and industrial groups are eligible for beam time as potential RADNEXT users, and in particular small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are strongly encouraged to submit their proposals. Beam time awarded for RADNEXT users is free of charge, funded by EU European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101008126.

The next Call For Proposals will be opened in May 2024.
