  • Review of CMC, DND and MU CATs

  • Approval of Letters of Intent for EBB Line, Powder Diffraction Beamline

    • Two proposals submitted to DOE competition for x-ray and neutron instrumentation

  • Consideration of scientific proposal for ENVIRO-CAT

  • Discussion and recommendations on policy issues


Key policy highlights
Key Policy Highlights (1/21-23)

  • Partnership Proposals

    • (only) complementary alternative to general user proposals
