Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East is a “third-generation” synchrotron light source that was officially opened in Allan, Jordan, in May 2017. It is the Middle East first major international research centre.
The European Synchrotron and FEL user organisation represents about 30.000 users of the European FEL and synchrotrons light sources. The mission of ESUO is to coordinate the user activities in Europe and to provide support to the users in order to get access to FEL and synchrotron beamlines in Europe.
CALIPSOplus removes barriers for access to world-class light sources in Europe and the Middle East. More than 82,500 hours of trans-national access are provided to these research infrastructures. Programmes are in place to teach new users how to successfully use synchrotrons and FELs. Dissemination activities targeting industry are complemented by tailor-made support and access programmes.
The Association of European-Level Research Infrastructures Facilities is a European not-for-profit association with the purpose of promoting the cooperation between European-level research infrastructures and external researchers.
The ERF-AISBL infrastructures are open at an international level and include national infrastructures as well as European networks and consortia of research infrastructures.
FELS OF EUROPE is a collaboration of all free-electron laser facilities in Europe, with the goal to meet the technological and scientific challenges of these novel and rapidly developing technologies and to provide a worldwide unique, pan-European research infrastructure that enables exploiting the full scientific potential of these unique accelerator based short-pulse light sources. The collaboration is an initiative of the ESFRI projects EuroFEL and European XFEL and includes 14 facilities in 10 countries.
Lightsources.org is a collaboration between communicators from light source facilities around the world. This platform groups 6 FEL and 21 synchrotron facilities representing 22 organisations from Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, Asia and Australia.
The site is a global resource, providing information and updates about light sources research and achievements, and opportunities for careers and international collaboration
The portal is a reference website for the 30.000 user community of all synchrotrons and free-electron lasers in Europe. It presents standardized technical datasheets of all European beamlines and offers a standardized proposal format as a pilot.
