ELI ERIC – A Happy Ending (And Continuing) Story
The European Commission (EC), the College of Commissioners, has adopted a long-anticipated decision to establish the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium - ERIC with its seat in Dolní Břežany, Czech Republic. The EC decision will come to force by its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union, expected in early June 2021.
ELI ERIC is the world´s most advanced multi-site, high-power, high repetition, short-pulse laser research infrastructure, with facilities in Dolní Břežany (ELI-beamlines) and Szeged (ELI-ALPS).
This success can be looked upon from many different angles. We will concentrate on the influence of European Union´s Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development (FP) projects on the setting up of ELI ERIC and its initial operations.
