RAMIRI 1 was managed by a consortium of six major European research institutions. Day-to-day administration and management of the project took place at Imperial College London, in consultation with the RAMIRI Consortium Board and the RAMIRI Steering Group.

The RAMIRI 1 Consortium partners were:

ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility)

The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility is an international institute funded by 19 countries. It operates Europe's most powerful synchrotron light source and hosts 6000 scientific user visits per year for 900 different experiments.

Imperial College London

Consistently rated amongst the world's best universities, Imperial College London is a science-based institution with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research. Imperial College embodies and delivers world class scholarship, education and research in science, engineering, medicine and business, with particular regard to their application in industry, commerce and healthcare.

Institut Max von Laue-Paul Langevin (ILL)

The Institut Laue-Langevin is an international research centre at the leading edge of neutron science and technology. The Institute operates the most intense neutron source in the world, feeding intense beams of neutrons to a suite of 40 high-performance instruments that are constantly upgraded.

DESY (Stiftung Deutsches Elektronen-Synchotron)

DESY is one of the world's leading centres for the investigation of the structure of matter. DESY develops, runs and uses accelerators and detectors for photon science and particle physics. DESY is a national research center supported by public funds and member of the Helmholtz Association.

Elettra (Sincrotrone Trieste S.C.p.A.)

ELETTRA is a multidisciplinary Synchrotron Light Laboratory in AREA Science Park, open to researchers in diverse basic and applied fields. The laboratory is equipped with ultra-bright light sources in the spectral range from UV to X-rays and offers a stimulating and competitive environment to researchers from all over the world.

UKAEA-Culham (United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority)

Culham is at the heart of international efforts to develop fusion as a sustainable source of energy. The site also houses a hi-tech business centre where companies are exploiting technology transfer from fusion research. It is also home to the Joint European Torus (JET) experiment, which is the flagship of the European Community Fusion Programme. The JET programme was set up to make it possible to carry out fusion tests under conditions that closely resemble those of a commercial fusion power plant.

The RAMIRI Consortium partners are also grateful to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory for coordination, hospitality and support activities during the London leg of the RAMIRI Symposium.

The Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) is near Didcot in Oxfordshire. It has a global reputation for excellence and is one of the foremost laboratories of its kind. It supports research in areas including materials and structures, light sources, astronomy and particle physics. The Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is also home to ISIS, the world's leading pulsed neutron and muon source.
