Representatives of the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) participated in the High Power Laser Science and Engineering (HPLSE) Forum on April 9-13, 2018. The event was organized by the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics (SIOM) and is the largest event on laser research to be held in China and the Asian region.

A special session on ELI was organized with the aim to present and promote the three research facilities of ELI for the international and Chinese expert audience.

From ELI, all three research institutes participated as well as the ELI Delivery Consortium. The event was excellent opportunity to engage with key actors in the field of laser research (e.g. CAS, SIOM), who indicated their openness to potential cooperation and on-site visits to the research institutes.

The Hungarian Science & Technology Attaché in China initiated the session. That came with strong support from the Department of Science Diplomacy of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Zsolt Fülöp, the Hungarian Envoy Extraordinary for ELI, who was also present.

The Hungarian facility, ELI-ALPS, was represented by Lóránt Lehrner, Managing Director, and Károly Osvay, Research Technology Director.

From ELI Beamlines, the Czech facility, the event was attended by Georg Korn, Director of Science and Technology, Stefan Weber, Dr Stefan Borneis, Laser and Optometric Consultant, and Gu Yanjun.

The ELI-NP research center in Romania was represented by Ioan Dancus, Research Manager.
