CALIPSOplus Twinning Programme

6th October 2017

CALIPSOplus dedicates particular attention to leveraging scientific excellence in EU-13 countries and to widening the use of light sources by users from these regions. To this effect in Workpackage “WP3 – NA2 – Dissemination & Training”, a Twinning Programme has been set up to partner potential users with host groups that could share their know-how and expertise in applying the available experimental techniques to common research areas.
