The ESRF User Organisation Committee (UOC) promotes research at the ESRF by:

  •  providing a framework for discussion within the user community,
  • organising the Annual User Meeting,
  • awarding the ESRF Young Scientist Award on a yearly basis,
  • collecting users' opinions on all relevant issues,
  • providing a direct link between the users and the ESRF Management.

Anyone who has used the ESRF in the past five years is automatically a member of its user community and can contact the committee members for all relevant issues.

The User Organisation Committee, elected by the users, organises the annual User Meeting and conducts the day-to-day business of the organisation.
