- continued support for SLS and SwissFEL,
- continued support for the international facilities European X-ray Free-Electron-Laser (EU-XFEL) and ESRF,
- expanded funding mechanisms for instrumentation that enhance the impact of large-scale facilities, including institution-based laser platforms.
The current scientific programs at SLS and SwissFEL are at the forefront of science. The recommendations in this roadmap will allow the Swiss community to maintain this status and excel within the international photon science community in the near future. Nevertheless, it remains crucial to continuously expand on our technological capabilities, react to the changing needs of the community, and to pursue new developments in science; therefore, this roadmap should be regularly updated.
