On 3 February 2016, the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Extreme Light Infrastructure – Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) / “Horia Hulubei” National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering, signed a Collaboration Agreement in Bucharest, Romania.
ELI-NP is one of the three pillars of the European Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) that is supported by European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI). The impressive construction site of ELI-NP was visited following the signing event.
The collaboration agreement aims to support the implementation of ELI-NP, with the expertise available at the JRC Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM). The nuclear data infrastructure at JRC-IRMM is one of the three JRC infrastructures connected to ESFRI.
The agreement will promote and strengthen transnational access to both organisations and will start with four well defined joint research actions.
