Due to safety reasons, please note that we are not accepting individual visits at the moment. The Group visits are organised within our educational programmes.

If you want to register a class, please contact us. We have an educational programme called "Synchotron@School", based on a collaboration with the "Académie de Grenoble". Geared for high-school students, it consists in a one-day programme of experimental workshops and ESRF site visits. These days of hands-on science and discovery help students to better understand the construction of a research project, and to discover the diversity of science careers in an international facility.
