Fruitful ELI Users Workshop in Germany

The ELI - German Users Workshop was held 29-30 June in Dresden. The aim of the workshop, held upon invitation by the ELI-Delivery Consortium and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), was to provide a platform for scientific discussions between professionals from German universities and research institutions, and scientists and engineers from the ELI Pillars.

The workshop started with a visit at ELI Beamlines in Dolní Břežany and continued with presentations and discussions at Dreikönigskirche conference center in Dresden. ELI scientists presented the current implementation status and the research opportunities offered by the three ELI pillars to the German scientific community. At the same time, the German scientists had the opportunity to present their main interests in the future use of ELI and to discuss them with the ELI scientists.

Discussions between the scientists from the ELI pillars and the German researchers were very vivid. The feedback by the 60 participants indicated that the workshop has been considered as very fruitful and clearly calling for a follow-up meeting.
