Through this project, entitled in full Utilisation of Light Source and Crystallographic Sciences to Facilitate the Enhancement of Knowledge and Improve the Economic and Social Conditions in Targeted Regions of the World, ICSU will partner with IUPAP and IUCr to enhance Advanced Light Sources (AdLS) and crystallographic sciences in Africa, Mexico, the Caribbean and Middle East.
Version 1 of the LAAMP brochure entitled “Advanced Light Sources and Crystallography: Tools of Discovery and Innovation”, edited by Ernie Malamud, is now available for download here.

ESRF News, issue November 2017, features an article on "ESRF trains synchrotron scientists from Africa, the Americas and the Middle East".
Andrea Lausi (Elettra Synchrotron Trieste, Italy and lightsources.org) will talk about LAAMP during his plenary lecture entitled "Cooperative brightness" at the 7a Reunión de Usuarios de Luz Sincrotrón, which will be help in León, Guanajuato, Mexico on 3 to 6 October 2017.
A thematic session sponsored by LAAMP and entitled "Light Sources and Crystallographic Sciences for Sustainable Development" has been approved to be part of the programme of the next World Science Forum.
It only takes few minutes to fill in the LAAMP survey and help develop a database of AdLS and crystallography users, and facilities used in the targeted regions of the project. Do it now!
