The ELI Beamlines Center is part of the international European Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) project. The lasers at ELI Beamlines aim to provide unprecedented ultrashort, ultra-intense laser pulses for diverse interdisciplinary applications in physics, medicine, biology and materials science. Currently, several of the main laser beamlines are operational and are being expanded and upgraded to reach their full performance and maximum availability. Other laser beamlines are in commissioning and new cutting-edge laser sources are in the design and development phase. ELI Beamlines is a part of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and it was opened in 2015.

The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences is a holder of the HR Excellence in Research Award. It is awarded by the European Commission to institutions which put significant effort into improving their human resources strategy and ensuring professional and ethical working conditions.
