  • ESRF – European Synchrotron Radiation Facility

    ESRF logo

    The ESRF is the world’s most intense X-ray source and a centre of excellence for fundamental and innovation-driven research in condensed and living matter science.
    The intense source of synchrotron-generated light produces X-rays 100 billion times brighter than the X-rays used in hospitals. These X-rays, endowed with exceptional properties, are produced at the ESRF by the high energy electrons that race around the storage ring, a circular tunnel measuring 844 metres in circumference.
    Each year, the demand to use these X-ray beams increases and near to 9000 scientists from around the world come to “beamlines”, each equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation, operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Located in Grenoble, France, the ESRF owes its success to the international cooperation of 22 partner nations, of which 13 are Members and 9 are Associates.

  • Central European Research Infrastructure Consortium (CERIC-ERIC)

    CERIC-ERIC integrates and provides open access to some of the best facilities in Europe, to help science and industry advance in all fields of materials, biomaterials and nanotechnology. With a single entry point to some of the leading national research infrastructures in 8 European countries, it enables the delivery of innovative solutions to societal challenges in the fields of energy, health, food, cultural heritage and more.

  • ELI Delivery Consortium

    ELI-DC AISBL is an international non-profit association under Belgian law. It has been established to support the coordinated implementation of the ELI laser research facilities in Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania, preserve the consistency and complementarity of their scientific missions, and promote and advertise the wide range of future research opportunities of ELI to the user communities.

  • ESS – European Spallation Source

    The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC), a multi-disciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. ESS is currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, and the Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC) is based in Copenhagen, Denmark. ESS vision is to build and operate the world’s most powerful neutron source, enabling scientific breakthroughs in research related to materials, energy, health and the environment, and addressing some of the most important societal challenges of our time.

    The European Spallation Source ERIC has currently 13 members: Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

    ESS is a partnership of European nations committed to collectively building and operating a multi-disciplinary research facility providing the world’s most powerful neutron source. The unique capabilities of ESS will both greatly exceed and complement those of today’s leading neutron sources, enabling new opportunities for researchers in materials science.

  • European Grid Infrastructure Foundation (EGI)

    EGI

    EGI is a federated e-Infrastructure set up to provide advanced computing services for research and innovation.
    The EGI e-infrastructure is publicly-funded and comprises hundreds of data centres and cloud providers spread across Europe and worldwide.
    The federation is coordinated by the EGI Foundation, which has been created to manage the infrastructure on behalf of the EGI Council participants.
    The mission of EGI is to create and deliver open solutions for science and research infrastructures by federating digital capabilities, resources and expertise between communities and across national boundaries.

  • European XFEL

    European XFEL logo

    The European XFEL in the Hamburg area is a new international research facility of superlatives: 27,000 X-ray flashes per second and a brilliance that is a billion times higher than that of the best conventional X-ray sources open up completely new opportunities for science. Research groups from around the world are able to map the atomic details of viruses, decipher the molecular composition of cells, take three-dimensional “photos” of the nanoworld, “film” chemical reactions, and study processes such as those occurring deep inside planets. European XFEL has a workforce of more than 350 employees and started user operation September 2017. With construction and commissioning costs of 1.25 billion euro (at 2005 price levels) and a total length of 3.4 kilometres, the European XFEL is one of the largest and most ambitious European new research facilities to date. At present, 12 countries have signed the European XFEL convention: Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

  • Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL)

    Neutrons for Society logo

    The Institut Laue-Langevin is an international research centre at the leading edge of neutron science and technology.

    As the world’s flagship centre for neutron science, the ILL provides scientists with a very high flux of neutrons feeding some 40 state-of-the-art instruments, which are constantly being developed and upgraded.

    As a service institute, the ILL makes its facilities and expertise available to visiting scientists. Every year, about 1400 researchers from over 40 countries visit the ILL and 640 experiments selected by a scientific review committee are performed. Research focuses primarily on fundamental science in a variety of fields: condensed matter physics, chemistry, biology, nuclear physics and materials science, etc.

    The ILL also collaborates closely and at different levels of confidentiality with the R&D departments of industrial enterprises.

    ILL is funded and managed by France, Germany and the United Kingdom, in partnership with ten other countries.
