Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste is directly involved in numerous large-scale International Projects. This section has been thought to provide easy access to relevant information on the status of this projects, including objectives and partnership.

MUR International Projects

CERIC–ERIC (Central European Research Infrastructure Consortium)

The CERIC-ERIC Consortium offers access to a wide array of microscopic probes for analytical and modification techniques, nowhere else accessible in a single facility, of materials of interest in life sciences, nanotechnology, cultural heritage, environment and industrial manufacturing.


The ELETTRA International Project continues and extends the service to the international user community of the Elettra source. The existing international collaborations commit the research centre to a continuous upgrade of the infrastructure, aimed at ensuring state of the art performance.


SESAME (acronym for Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East) is an international project that aims to create a synchrotron light source in the Middle East. 

ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure)

The Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) is a laser facility that aims to host the most intense lasers world-wide and develop new interdisciplinary research opportunities with light from these lasers. It will be based on three sites, hosted by the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania.


ESS (European Spallation Source)

The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a multi-disciplinary research centre based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. It will enable new opportunities for researchers in the fields of life sciences, energy, environmental technology, cultural heritage and fundamental physics.

EUROFEL (European Free Electron Lasers)

The EUROFEL project aims to establish a distributed European FEL infrastructure with the participation, besides Italy, of Germany, Sweden, France, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Poland. Its evolution will be driven by the novel cutting-edge applications opened up by its user community.



The FERMI International Project builds on the results of the Flagship Project. Upon conclusion of the latter, the former represents the outlook in the future, aimed at sustaining the presently ongoing stage of ever evolving upgrade of the source paralleled by the user-assisted commissioning.

NFFA (Nanoscience Foundries and Fine Analysis)

The Nanoscience Foundries and Fine Analysis (NFFA) project integrates in a multisite combination advanced infrastructures specialized on growth, lithography, characterization, theory, simulation and fine-analysis of nanomaterials with Synchrotron, FEL and Neutron radiation sources.

EuBi (Euro-BioImaging)

Euro‐BioImaging is a large‐scale pan‐European research infrastructure that aim to provide physical and virtual access to cutting edge imaging technologies in the framework of multinational research in the life science within the European Research Area.
