The ELI (Extreme Light Impulse Source) laser research centre was established in three Eastern European countries through international cooperation, yet operated under joint management and research strategy.
The Szeged-based ELI Attosecond Light Impulse Source (ELI-ALPS) research facility is primarily intended to provide a wide range of light sources with ultra-short pulses (with particular focus on coherent ultraviolet (XUV), X-ray and attosecond pulses) for various user groups of the international scientific community. Another major element of the facility’s mission is to promote the scientific and technological development of high peak-intensity and high average-power lasers. The owners include the Hungarian Government, the Local Governing County Authority of Szeged, and the University of Szeged. The foundation of ELI-ALPS took place on 6 February 2014 in Szeged.

As a subcontractor of Strabag MML and Swietelsky Építő Kft., Pentolt Kft. has supplied, implemented and commissioned the integrated fire alarm, intrusion, access control and CCTV systems for the facility exclusively using Siemens products, and also did the planning of the IT network.
