EUCALL – the European Cluster of Advanced Laser Light Sources
EUCALL is a network between leading large-scale user facilities for free-electron laser, synchrotron and optical laser radiation and their users. Under EUCALL, they work together on their common methodologies and research opportunities, and develop tools to sustain this interaction in the future. EUCALL has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and involves 11 partners from nine countries as well as the networks Laserlab Europe and FELs of Europe during the project period 2015 to 2018. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654220.
Laserlab – The Integrated Initiative of European Laser Research Infrastructures
Laserlab-Europe is in the third phase of its successful cooperation: the Consortium now brings together 28 leading organizations in laser-based inter-disciplinary research from 16 countries. Together with associate partners, Laserlab covers the majority of the European member states. 20 facilities offer access to their labs for European research teams.

ELI DC– The Extreme Light Infrastructure delivery consortium
ELI will be the world’s first international laser research infrastructure, pursuing unique science and research applications for international users as a new Research Infrastructure (RI) of pan-European interest and part of the European ESFRI Roadmap. ELI DC represents a European ESFRI project for the investigation of light-matter interactions at highest intensities and shortest time scales.
EUSMI – European infrastructure for spectroscopy, scattering and imaging of soft matter
The main objective of EUSMI, as EU project, is to provide an interdisciplinary infrastructure for soft matter research to support about 300 advanced projects in four years. Our strategy is to put the needs of the individual soft matter scientist at the center of our activities by providing cutting edge, specialized infrastructures that are not available within single institutions or even at the R&D centers of multinationals. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 731019.
FELs of Europe – FELs of Europe
FELs of Europe is a collaboration of all free electron laser (FEL) 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.
LEAPS – League of European Accelerator-based Photon Sources
LEAPS – the League of European Accelerator-based Photon Sources – is a strategic consortium initiated by the Directors of the Synchrotron Radiation and Free Electron Laser (FEL) user facilities in Europe. Its primary goal is to actively and constructively ensure and promote the quality and impact of the fundamental, applied and industrial research carried out at their respective facility to the greater benefit of European science and society.
Wayforlight – the catalogue of European lightsources
Wayforlight was created during the FP7 funded project CALIPSO, to offer a single entry point for information about the European synchrotrons and free electron lasers. During CALIPSO, it was equipped with standardized facilities and beamline datasheets and with a pilot Standardized Proposal Format.
During the Horizon 2020 CALIPSOplus project, wayforlight is being boosted with an industry dedicated section, an interactive user forum and a standardized proposal format 2.0. Moreover, a new section will offer an overview of the upcoming training possibilities at the European lightsources.
Thanks to the Horizon 2020 EUCALL project, the facilities and beamlines database will be totally rebuilt in summer 2018 to host also laser and laser-driven light sources such as the ELI facilities and the Laserlab Europe ones.
In the near future, wayforlight will be interlinked with the global platform Lightsources.org and will be further developed into a European helpdesk within the LEAPS initiative: a bright future ahead!
ESUO – European Synchrotron and FEL User Organization
The European Synchrotron and FEL user organization (ESUO) represents about 30.000 users of the European synchrotrons and FEL light sources. At present 29 European countries (including Turkey and Israel) are ESUO members and are represented by delegates. The general missions of ESUO are to coordinate the synchrotron and FEL radiation user activities in Europe and to provide support to the users in order to get access to synchrotron and FEL beamlines in Europe.
EMFL – European Magnetic Field Laboratory
The EMFL develops and operates world class high magnetic field facilities, to use them for excellent research by in-house and external users.
