Accelerating synchrotron research will lead to high-impact results
Synchrotrons are huge particle accelerators about the size of a football field that accelerate electrons to speeds approaching the speed of light. The insights they provide advance fields including life science, engineering, environmental science, physical and materials science, and even cultural heritage where non-destructive synchrotron techniques can be used to answer questions in palaeontology, archaeology, art history and forensics. The EU-funded STREAMLINE project is ensuring that the groundbreaking facilities at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) will be used with optimal efficiency. Accommodating more users, more varied experiments and more data requires a new business plan including training of user communities, updated access modes and innovative service packages. STREAMLINE will foster sustainability and high-impact exploitation.
