In-kind contributions

To a great extent, the European XFEL facility will be realized by means of in-kind contributions by shareholders and partners.

In the present European XFEL project organization, the value of in-kind contributions accounts for around 50 % of the total project budget.

Before becoming in-kind contribution, the expression of interest presented by an institute must be approved by the In-Kind Review Committee (IKRC).

Coordinator for in-kind contributions is Antonio Bonucci.

The data below shows the status on 1 July 2014.
