We announce a proposal for collaboration, intended to build the antineutrino detector under the Belarus Nuclear Power Plant. Here we discuss the reactor antineutrino spectra, the reactions to detect neutrino, possible design and location of detector.



We are glad to acknowledge for partial financial support the State Program of Scientific research «Energy systems, processes and technology», subprogram «Nuclear energetics and nuclear-physical technologies» 3.1.12 (state registrations ## 20160517).
