Home CALIPSOplus in a nutshell

After four and a half years, CALIPSOplus successfully ended on 31 October 2021.

The aim of the CALIPSOplus project was to remove barriers for access to world-class accelerator-based light sources in Europe and in the Middle East. To this end, more than 179,000 hours of trans-national access have been provided to these research infrastructures and specific programmes were installed to teach new users how to successfully use synchrotrons and FELs. Dissemination activities targeting industry were complemented by tailor-made support and access programmes for this user group. In parallel the consortium was collaborating on constantly developing technology to keep the facilities at the cutting-edge.
