Sylvie Jacquemot Takes Over as the New Laserlab-Europe Coordinator

Sylvie Jacquemot from the Laboratoire pour l'Utilisation des Lasers Intenses (LULI) located at École Polytechnique (France), has been elected as the new Coordinator of Laserlab-Europe. She takes on the role previously held by Claes-Göran Wahlström from Lund Laser Centre at Lund University (Sweden), who led the consortium and its evolution through successive EU Framework Programmes since 2012. The consortium has since grown to 36 partner institutions, comprising 19 European countries. The current project period started recently, funded by the European Union from 2019 to 2023.

Following more than 16 years as Deputy Director of LULI, Sylvie Jacquemot is now Officer in charge of European Affairs in the lab. Her individual scientific expertise encompasses plasma physics and related high-energy-density applications, in particular inertial fusion sciences and X-Ray laser physics.

École Polytechnique and the Laserlab-Europe partners congratulate Sylvie Jacquemot on this election and wish her all the best in the future coordination of the network. Laserlab-Europe also thanks Claes-Göran Wahlström who will continue to collaborate on the project, in particular in his function as Executive Director of Laserlab-Europe AISBL, the association of European-level laser research infrastructures.
