CALIPSOplus is an European project with the aim of removing barriers for access to world-class accelerator-based light sources in Europe and in the Middle East. To this end more than 82,500 hours of trans-national access are provided to these research infrastructures and specific programmes are in place to teach new users how to successfully use synchrotrons and FELs. Dissemination activities targeting industry are complemented by tailor-made support and access programmes for this user group. In parallel the consortium is collaborating on constantly developing technology to keep the facilities at the cutting-edge.
The ALBA Synchrotron hosts the 1st Annual CALIPSOplus meeting that will count with the participation of about 50 users and experts from European synchrotron and FELs facilities.
