Nacht der Forschung - Night of Research at the University of Bern on September 10, 2022.
After a pandemic-related break, the University of Bern is finally organizing another "Night of Research" on Saturday, September 10, 2022 from 4 p.m. to midnight. In the usual form, science and research will be made tangible and the dialogue between the public and researchers will be initiated in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.
SSPh talk by Janos Hajdu - Diffraction Before Destruction
Janos Hajdu from ELI and the University of Uppsala will give a presentation on Tuesday, August 23, 2022 at ETHZ.
Introduction to Synchrotron and XFEL Radiation – Techniques and Applications Prof. Phil Willmott, Swiss Light Source and University of Zürich
A new massive-open-online course (MOOC) offered by the EPFL will be published on 11th April 2022. The introductory course includes a description of the interaction of matter with x-rays, the production of x-rays at synchrotrons and x-ray free-electron lasers, and the optics and experimental instrumentation needed to carry out experiments at such large-scale facilities.

Photon Science Roadmap for Research Infrastructures 2025–2028 by the Swiss Photon Community
On a mandate of the Confederation, the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) developed individual roadmaps for scientific research infrastructures. Overall, there is a total of 7 roadmaps (Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Neutron Science, Particle Physics, Photon Science, Astronomy (in preparation)) published altogether in March 2021. The Photon Science roadmap distills findings and recommendations with respect to large scale photon sources for the period 2025 to 2028. It includes three chapters, one on synchrotrons, one on XFELs and one on support infrastructure, such as ‘Fastlabs’. Each chapter provides details to back-up the main recommendations.
