Finnish Synchrotron Radiation Users Organization

The Finnish Synchrotron Radiation Users Organisation (FSRUO, suom. Suomen Synkrotronisäteilyn Käyttäjien Yhdistys ry) is a nonprofit association that was formed in Helsinki on Nov. 12th, 2009 by the founding members from the Universities of Helsinki, Oulu, Turku and the Tampere University of Technology. FSRUO is a non-profit organisation with the main purpose of promoting and representing interdisciplinary basic and applied scientific research using synchrotron radiation and free electron lasers. FSRUO provides a forum for information exchange and collaboration between researchers affiliated with Finnish institutions and companies, whose work is related to the use of synchrotron radiation. FSRUO can apply for and collect funding for organising meetings, workshops, courses, invited visits of lecturers and experts, and for facilitating synchrotron related infrastructure development and data collection. If necessary, FSRUO acts as the coordinating body in the interactions with Finnish government and funding agencies when considering large-scale infrastructure and research strategies. The Board of FSRUO appoints a national representative to corresponding international bodies. We invite all researchers in Finland whose work is related to synchrotron radiation or who consider its use in future to join FSRUO.
