Invitation to ErUM-Pro Match-Making-Workshop (FLASH & PETRA III)

Registration until Sept. 17, 2021


Dear colleagues,

The call for proposals for the upcoming round of ErUM-Pro (formerly "collaborative research") should be published in the next few days. This funding instrument, which is unique in the world, offers excellent opportunities to link university research with large-scale research institutions.

For ErUM-Pro applications, it is helpful for applicants to consult with potential partners, the user community and with the operators of the large-scale instrumentation prior to submission to ensure that the necessary prerequisites are in place and that productive continued operation of the instrumentation is guaranteed after the funding expires.

To support this coordination process, DESY Photon Science, in coordination with the Committee Research with Synchrotron Radiation (KFS) for the two radiation sources PETRA III and FLASH, invites the interested research community to a 'Match - Making' workshop (video conference) on 16 and 17 September 2021. At this workshop, the operators of the radiation sources will present their development and expansion strategy for the coming years. Furthermore, applicants and user groups will be given the opportunity to present their ideas for instrumentation proposals and to coordinate these with the radiation source operators and, if necessary, also with each other.

If you would like to participate in this workshop, please register by 10 September with:

The detailed programme of the workshop will then be compiled depending on registrations.

The following programme is planned:

Thursday Sept. 16
    09:00 - 18:00 : PETRA III

Friday Sept. 17
    09:00 - 12:00 : FLASH
    13:00 - 15:00 : Match-Making in separate Breakout - Rooms

If you have any questions, please contact for PETRA III and for FLASH. We are looking forward to a lively participation.

With best regards,

Edgar Weckert
