Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society

Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society was founded in 1992. The Society has mainly scientific and educational purposes. In particular it is engaged in promoting and supporting the development of research with the use of synchrotron radiation and it aims to make it more popular in Poland.

For over 10 years members of the Society have been promoting knowledge about research opportunities connected with the use of synchrotron radiation. They have also been engaged in popularization of synchrotron radiation through publications, lectures, courses, tours and support for organization of scientific and educational competitions.

Another important task which Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society should carry out is to organize international schools and symposia called International School and Symposium on Synchrotron Radiation in Natural Science as well as national conferences called National Symposium of Synchrotron Radiation Users.

Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society is also engaged in organization of financial help which makes it possible for young scientists to participate in international schools, conferences and meetings. The Society also holds scientific contacts with Synchrotron Radiation Societies in other countries by inviting and organizing visits of scientists to Poland.

Current number of members of Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society is 156 people.

Chairman: Prof. Maciej Kozak - Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan.
