The Horia Hulubei National Institute for Research & Development in Physics and Nuclear Engineering (IFIN-HH) operates, among other facilities, a 3 MV Tandetron™ accelerator, built by High Voltage Engineering Europa B.V. Since commissioning in 2012, the 3 MV Tandetron™ has emerged as an important tool to open new horizons in a variety of accelerator-based research fields. In other words, the 3 MV Tandetron™ accelerator has become one of the key facilities in the landscape of Romanian in both basic research and applications. In addition, our laboratory represents an adequate environment for training young scientists and undergraduates since they can develop marketable skills through accelerator-based research, such as data collection/analysis, software development or simulations. After a brief description of the facility, several prominent highlights defining our research capabilities are described. Finally, our ongoing and future upgrades plan is depicted.
