The core CALIPSO initiative is the development of the wayforlight
European lightsources single entry point, under the User Friendliness dedicated Networking Activity.
Wayforlight way first created to present in a homogeneous way to a potential user all European synchrotrons and free electron lasers.
During the project, it evolved into an interactive portal presenting all European beamlines (more than 300) in a standardized way complemented by advanced search tools and links to specialized scientists. In addition, single-sign-on to all lightsources' eb-based user offices will be available through the Umbrella software (www.umbrellaid.org
Subsequently, the single entry point offered the possibility for a user to fill a standardized proposal format on wayforlight and then complete only facility-depended data at each facility's website.
In this way, current and potential users are be able to find the best beamline for their experiment and submit a proposal in a much more interactive and simpler way.
