The French community of synchrotron and XFEL users represents a large multi-disciplinary community of scientists working in Biology and Health, soft Material and Chemistry, Geosciences and Environment, Surfaces-interfaces and nano-objects, diluted or condensed Materials, Paleontology, Archaeology, Heritage and Preservation. To federate this large community, the French organization of Synchroton and XFEL Radiation Users (AFURS: Association Française des Utilisateurs de Rayonnement Synchrotron) has been created and registered as a non-profit organization in 2014 in Paris Prefecture.

AFURS represents the French community of synchrotron and XFEL users at ESUO.

The French organization of Synchroton and XFEL Radiation Users (AFURS: Association Française des Utilisateurs de Rayonnement Synchrotron) has been created and registered as a non-profit organization in 2014 in Paris Prefecture. It represents the large multi-disciplinary community of SR and XFEL users working in France in industry and French public research organizations, which includes more than 2000 users on a yearly basis.

AFURS goal is to collect the needs of the French community of synchrotron and XFEL users, and to federate and represent this community at the national or European level. AFURS intends with ESUO to favor the use of synchrotron radiation techniques, to act to maintain the quality of the developments on synchrotron and XFEL sources and to favor the complementarity of the beamlines on synchrotron sources.

 

AFURS has been registered as a non-profit organization in 2014 in Paris Prefecture (Journal Officiel from 19th april 2014, registered with the ID: W751224073 – declaration number 1423).
