The grant was awarded to the consortium CompactLight of which VU and ARCNL are partners. CompactLight aims to advance the development of X-ray FEL sources across Europe and beyond by making the sources more cost efficient. They intend to achieve this by combining new and innovative accelerator technologies.

ARCNL is a public-private partnership between the Netherlands Foundation of Scientific Research Institutes (NWO-I), the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) and the semiconductor equipment manufacturer ASML.

Ronnie Hoekstra is a professor at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (RUG) and associated with Vrije Universiteit and ARCNL via a part-time appointment.
