 The Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) is pleased to announce the launch of the 4th ELI User Call. Researchers and scientists worldwide are invited to submit their proposals for access to its instruments which will be evaluated based on scientific excellence by an international peer-review panel. The Call continues to support a wide range of experiments, leveraging ELI's state-of-the-art equipment at: 

  • ELI ALPS in Szeged, Hungary  

  • ELI Beamlines in Dolní Břežany, Czech Republic 

The complete scientific offer is available on the ELI User Portal, including information about the application and review process. Proposers are strongly encouraged to contact the technical experts listed or the ELI User Office (user-office[@]eli-laser.eu) for any queries.

ELI will announce bi-annual User Calls in Spring and Autumn. This pattern underscores the commitment to making the facilities available to a growing number of researchers for scientific experiments. Accordingly, the 5th Call is expected to launch from 25 September until 29 October 2024. 

The Extreme Light Infrastructure is the world’s most advanced laser-based research infrastructure. The ELI Facilities provide access to a broad range of world-class high-power, high-repetition-rate laser systems and secondary sources. This enables cutting-edge research and new regimes of high-intensity physics in physical, chemical, medical, and materials sciences.  

SAVE THE DATE: the annual Joint ELI User Meeting is scheduled for 26-28 June 2024 in Dolní Břežany, near Prague, to be hosted at the ELI Beamlines Facility. This event will be an opportunity for updates on recent experiments and research performed, networking, collaboration, and sharing of insights. Further details will be made available shortly.
