4th Joint ELI Call for Users


Visit Website


The Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) is set to launch the 4th ELI User Call on 25 March with an open Call period until 29 April. This Call will continue to support a wide range of experiments, leveraging ELI's state-of-the-art equipment at ELI ALPS and ELI Beamlines. Researchers and scientists worldwide are invited to submit their proposals which will be evaluated based on scientific excellence by an international peer-review panel.

A preliminary list of the equipment available in the upcoming call is published with this announcement [see below]. The full set of parameters and technical information are being revised, taking into account ongoing commissioning work, and will be made available on the User Portal by 25 March.

With the ELI User Programme evolving, efforts to streamline access and support the users are ongoing. As part of this, ELI has taken a significant step forward by establishing a centralised User Office. The User Office is coordinating user access across the ELI ERIC Facilities, ensuring that researchers have a single point of contact for their proposals, questions, and needs. The aim is to offer a uniform user experience and support ground-breaking research. Scientists interested in submitting a proposal are strongly encouraged to contact the ELI User Office or technical contacts in advance.

ELI Summer School 2024


Visit Website

ELISS 2024 will take place on 2-6 September, hosted by the ELI ALPS Facility in Szeged, Hungary.

The 9th edition of the ELI Summer School series aims to provide young scientists with a comprehensive overview of the generation and application of intense laser pulses and laser-driven particle and radiation sources. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage in dynamic poster sessions and visit the ELI ALPS laboratories while making new connections with other students, speakers, and the ELI staff.

Last year, the school attracted an outstanding number of 120 students from 24 countries, including Poland, Germany, France, Italy and Greece, as well as China, India, Israel, Pakistan and Ukraine. As a result, ELISS 2023 was the most diverse in the history of the event series, offering opportunities to discuss and share knowledge in a broader range than ever before.

Let's make it even bigger this year!
