Abstract

We will briefly report on the experiment NUSEX (for Nucleon Stability Experiment) presently being prepared to be run in an underground laboratory located in the Mont Blanc Tunnel. The present status of the experiment and some preliminary results obtained at CERN by exposing a part of the apparatus to beams of pions, electrons and intermediate energy neutrinos will be discussed in some detail.
