Dear users,

below is displayed the list of calls for proposals ELI Beamlines facility, Czech Republic.

ELI Beamlines is a research facility open to scientists worldwide. Beamtime is free of charge, but experiment proposals must go through a peer-review process. Proposals must be submitted through the User Portal of ELI Beamlines in the frame of specific calls for proposals. As an important condition for access, after the experiments, the authors must strive to publish the results in peer-reviewed journals.




February 15, 2019 – August 30, 2019

The ELI Beamlines Facility (https://www.eli-beams.eu/en/) invites the scientific community to submit proposals for commissioning experiments in its E1 Experimental Hall that serves experiments for Applications in Molecular, Biomedical and Materials Sciences. The commissioning experiments of new experimental stations will take place between February 15 and August 30, 2019.

We invite specially qualified users to assist with instrument commissioning and to perform early experiments.

The aim of the call is

  • to perform high-level instrument commissioning and to initiate high-level user experiments, using the capabilities already in operation in the E1 experimental hall.
  • to increase the future value of the experimental capabilities of E1 for the broader user community by ensuring that the final development and commissioning steps are completed in collaboration with leading international experts.
  • to train ELI Beamlines scientific staff, user office personnel and support teams together with experienced users in the interactions necessary for efficient user operations.
