The Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia (MEC) trough the former Secretaría General del Plan Nacional de Investigación Científica y Desarrollo Tecnológico proposed in 1996 to the ESRF the construction of a multidisciplinary and multipurpose beamline as a Collaboration Research Group (CRG). The construction leadership was taken by ICMM-CSIC with the collaboration of other groups. The following table shows all involved institutions in this project.

 

ICMM

Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid, CSIC was in charge of the coordination between different institutes involved in the beamline project and was responsable of the design and construction of the infrastructure and beamline optical components   www.icmm.csic.es

CIEMAT

CIEMAT (Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas,  medio-ambientales y Tecnológicas) was in charge of the design and adquisition of the beamline  control electronic: www.ciemat.es
