Background to ARIE

The Analytical Research Infrastructures in Europe (ARIEs) provide unique windows into the workings of the world around us. They include powerful photon sources, such as synchrotrons, laser systems and free-electron lasers; sources of neutrons, ions and other particle beams; and facilities dedicated to advanced electron-microscopy and high magnetic fields.

They are centres of scientific and technological excellence, delivering services, data and know-how to a growing and diverse user community of more than 40,000 researchers in academia and industry, across a range of domains: the physical sciences, energy, engineering, the environment and the earth sciences, as well as medicine, health, food and cultural heritage.

The insights into materials and living matter made possible by their collective tools underpin the advanced research necessary for the success of the Horizon Europe Missions. The ARIEs provide free access to the scientific user community based upon scientific excellence and open data.

Members

e-DREAM was formed to promote cooperation between European-level advanced electron microscopy infrastructure providers, collaborative research and transnational user programmes.

The EMFL develops and operates world class high magnetic field facilities for excellent research by in-house and external
users.

Led by the University of Manchester, Inspire is a European Research Project that aims to provide a world-leading integrating activity for European research in Proton Beam Therapy (PBT).

Laserlab-Europe understands itself as the central place in Europe where new developments in laser research take place in a flexible and coordinated fashion.

LEAPS is a strategic consortium working to ensure and promote the quality and impact of the fundamental, applied and industrial research carried out at Synchrotron Radiation and Free Electron Laser user facilities in Europe.

LENS is a not-for-profit consortium working to promote cooperation between European-level neutron infrastructure providers offering
transnational user programs to external researchers.

The RADIATE project is working to structure the European Research Area of ion technology application by strengthening the cooperation between European ion beam infrastructures.
