The European grant is worth 6 million euros and will span a four-year period from beginning 2019 to end 2022 and is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement n°822535.
19 experts working in leading European synchrotron facilities visited the research center and met colleagues from SESAME. During the meeting , project highlights and the work programme were introduced and the milestones in the coming months were underlined.
BEATS is coordinated by ESRF, the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (France) and it involves leading research institutions in the Middle East (SESAME and the Cyprus Institute), as well as European institutions: ALBA-CELLS (Spain), DESY (Germany), Elettra (Italy), INFN (Italy), PSI (Switzerland), and SOLARIS (Poland).
