User Committee

Now, MLZ users have the possibility to speak with their own voice: the MLZ User Committee was established.

The MLZ User Committee represents the MLZ users in official meetings, offers a discussion forum within the MLZ users' community, and reports to the MLZ directors on new strategic ideas and procedures for a continuous improvement of the MLZ users' satisfaction.
Only non-MLZ staff users who performed at least three experiments in the last three years are eligible to be appointed to the User Committee.

After the summer break, a call for candidates had been distributed to the eligible users, and eleven persons showed interest to serve the MLZ User Committee.

The election process started on November 6th, and the elected members are

  • Sophie Combet, CEA, Saclay, France
  • Jens Gibmeier, KIT, Karlsruhe, Germany
  • David Keeble, Univ. Dundee, United Kingdom
  • Luigi Paduano, Univ. Napoli, Italy
  • Adrian Rennie, Uppsala Univ., Sweden (Chairman)

They are appointed for three years (2018-2020), and only one subsequent re-appointment is possible.

All MLZ users will be informed about the activity of the User Committee.
The first meeting of the MLZ User Committee will take place on March 1st, 2018.
All users are kindly invited to send their ideas and comments to the MLZ User Committee per email to

The MLZ User Committee looks forward to receiving your input!
