Access to DiRAC is co-ordinated by The STFC’s DiRAC Resource Allocation Committee, which puts out an annual Call for Proposals to request time, a Director’s Discretionary Call, and operates a Seedcorn Time programme for small requests.

Notification about any Call will be posted on our News page, and on Twitter.

For each Call, the RAC produces a set of documentation that includes a number of forms that every applicant must complete. The RAC also provides a comprehensive set of guidance notes.

Please note that all applicants must submit a technical case (technical application form) otherwise a full proposal submission will not be accepted.
