Laserlab-Europe achievements 2012-2015

Publicly available deliverables

Laserlab-Europe was funded under the Seventh EC Framework Programme (FP7), grant agreement 284464, as an "Integrating Activity", and as such is obliged to communicate and disseminate the results of the research and of any other activity of interest to the community or the public. In addition to the scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals, a number of deliverables will be produced throughout the lifetime of the project, that are mainly reports reflecting the background and status of the various work packages of the project.
