Dutch User organisation for Accelerator-based Light Sources (DUALIS)

The general mission of the Dutch User organisation for Accelerator-based Light Sources (DUALIS) is to strengthen the Dutch user community and its competitiveness for experiment time at international accelerator-based light sources including synchrotrons and free electron lasers (FELs). DUALIS aims to improve the information-exchange between users and council/committee members of these facilities. We will keep the Dutch user community informed of relevant developments via our newsletter (subscribe below) and bring the various involved parties together via user assembly meetings.

DUALIS is connected to the European facilities via ESUO, the European Synchrotron and FEL user organisation.

Upcoming events

Wednesday 21 September
Focus session at NWO CHAINS

The official kick-off of DUALIS will happen at NWO CHAINS on the 21st of September 2022 during a focus session from 13:20h – 14:05h in the Beneluxzaal.

DUALIS will be introduced by its initiators: Britta Redlich, Moniek Tromp, and Elias Vlieg. We will also discuss the links to the European initiatives ESUO and LEAPS, as well as the involvement in the ESRF and national large-scale research infrastructures and initiatives.

We are pleased to welcome Gema Martínez-Criado, director of research at ESRF, who will tell us about the new exciting possibilities of the upgraded ESRF.
