The visit was accompanied by Chris Hurne from the UKTI Trade & Investment team (which organised the event). The ELI delegates included the Head of the Scientific Engineering Division, members of the Safety and Radio Protection Group, Beam Transfer Group, and the Electrical Engineering Group Leader.
