There are more that 1100 synchrotron radiation and free electron users in Italy. The Italian Synchrotron Radiation Society (SILS) is the national user organization. There is no national funding scheme for the support of access to SR and FEL facilities.

The Società Italiana Luce di Sincrotrone (SILS) has been stablished in 1992. It is a non-profit organisation since 2014. It organises a yearly conference with young scientists awards, and a biannual SR and FEL school (jointly with Elettra). It represents the italian SR and FEL community of more than 1100 users.
