The IRUVX-PP Consortium invited scientists from all over Europe to attend the 3rd IRUVX-PP Annual Meeting from 21- 23 March 2011.
This years’ meeting has been hosted by and has taken place at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin. 114 Scientists and engineers discussed the state-of-the-art development and usage of Free Electron Laser light sources. In addition, this meeting provided opportunities to discuss and organise future collaborations within EuroFEL.

21st March - From preparatory phase to implementation
EuroFEL supports the successful implementation of FEL and SPS sources
On the first day of the meeting an overview of the status of the European FEL projects was given with a special focus on European collaborations and their impact on the success of the different projects.

22nd March - IRUVX-PP results and future EuroFEL collaborations
EuroFEL is a platform for all European stakeholders in FEL science & technology
This session gave an overview of the outcome of the preparatory phase of EuroFEL. The afternoon sessions provided opportunities to discuss future collaborations.

23rd March - FEL highlights
EuroFEL provides access to cutting-edge technology
Recent highlights from FEL science and technology developments were presented.

The meeting was open to everyone who is interested in learning more about the future of FELs in Europe.

About EuroFEL
IRUVX-PP is the Preparatory Phase of the EuroFEL Consortium. EuroFEL will make optimum use of resources and know-how in order to develop and maintain a set of free electron laser (FEL) and other accelerator based short-pulse & coherent light sources (SPS) that meet the needs of a multidisciplinary European user community.

Why FELs?
FELs and SPS are the most advanced of the accelerator based light sources which can deliver wavelengths spanning from infrared to ultraviolet and X-rays (IRUVX). They permit investigation of ultrafast (femtosecond) dynamics phenomena on a nanoscale, understanding of which will underpin the exploitation of new high technology areas such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, advanced materials and catalysis. A number of research centres and governments in Europe, USA and Asia have initiated construction of such new facilities at a cost of several hundred million Euros each.
