ELI - German Users Workshop

Dresden, Germany

ELI, the world’s first international laser research infrastructure, will offer unique scientific and research opportunities for the international user communities. It is the first ESFRI project which will be fully implemented in the newer EU Member States, with research facilities (pillars) located in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania. ELI uses a novel funding model combining the use of EU structural funds (ESIF) and national funds for the construction, and Member contributions to a European Research Infrastructure Consortium, ELI-ERIC, which is about to be funded, for the operation.


As ELI is heading towards the operational phase of the 3 pillars, scientific workshops, jointly organized with the scientific communities of the ELI-DC Member states, aim at providing an overall picture of the research opportunities that ELI facilities can offer.
In Germany, ELI scientists will present the implementation status and the research opportunities offered by the three pillars of ELI to the German scientific community, the German scientists will have the opportunity to present their main interests in the use of ELI and to discuss them with ELI scientists.
The German ELI user workshop will start with a visit of ELI Beamlines in Dolní Břežany and will continue with presentations and discussions in Dresden. More detailed information on the event and a link for registration will soon be available from this site

After a very successful 1st edition in Dolní Břežany (Czech Republic) in 2016, we are pleased to announce the 2nd edition of the ELI Summer School (ELISS 2017), which will be hosted by ELI–Nuclear Physics and held in the period 27 August – 1 September 2017 in the Carpathian Mountains in Romania.



The aim of the ELI Summer School (ELISS) is to offer Ph.D. students, post-docs and young researchers an introductory training in the main topics of the extreme light research and applications undertaken at the three pillars of ELI (ELI-ALPS, ELI-Beams and ELI-NP), from ultrahigh power laser research and laser-based plasma physics, to particle acceleration, study of fundamental radiation-matter interactions, nuclear photonics and attoscience. The lectures will be delivered by highly-recognized specialists in the field, starting from a basic level while also highlighting the latest experimental and theoretical advances and most recent applications. Junior participants registered at the school are strongly encouraged to share their own research interests with the other participants by presenting a poster in a dedicated poster session.
