European User Offices Meeting

Date 05. April 2016 - 06. April 2016


European XFEL, Hamburg, Germany


The 2nd Meeting of the European User Offices will be held in Hamburg on 5-6 April 2016. The meeting will be co-hosted by the User Offices of DESY Photon Science, EMBL Hamburg and European XFEL. In recent times, the user research administration landscape in Europe has been evolving very quickly, in a very complex funding situation. In addition, new facilities are under construction or coming into operation and a number of established facilities have gone or are going through upgrade programmes. Due to the increasing number of users of large-scale research facilities, all this has potentially a large impact on photon and neutron science output in Europe. In this framework, a strong network among User Offices can be very productive for all participants. After a successful first meeting at ALBA in Barcelona in November 2014, the 2nd Meeting of the European User Offices will be another useful opportunity for exchanging information and experiences on present and upcoming common challenges relevant to user operation at large-scale synchrotron, FEL and neutron facilities.
