Establishment of a laser research centre in Szeged

The ELI-ALPS laser research centre in Szeged is one of the largest scientific investments in Europe, which could underpin the global discoveries of the future in many fields of science. Thanks to the project, Szeged figures more prominently than ever on the map of Europe as one of the regional centres of international science. The new institution makes it possible to conduct cutting-edge fundamental research with high intensity lasers and secondary sources of light and particles. By supporting research and innovation, the European Union encourages research teams from different countries and disciplines to cooperate, which is key to achieving breakthrough discoveries. The work of the 2023 Nobel Prize winners in physics, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L’Huillier, is also closely related to the ELI laser research centre.
