Abstract: Science and principles of scientific conduct are universal, leading to worldwide communication of ideas and trust among its practitioners. Scientists, as much as they may compete, they also easily reach across borders and collaborate for common goals.

In this talk I am going to introduce to you SESAME (Synchrotron light source for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East, www.sesame.org.jo), a collaborative effort for a synchrotron facility for advanced research in the Middle East. Eight countries, Cyprus, Egypt, Israel, Iran, Jordan, Palestinian Authority, Pakistan and Turkey, supported by several observer countries, have worked together to bring this facility to life and start producing results. Currently, it is in the third round of calls for project proposals for its three beamlines with two more beamlines becoming operational in the next two years.

I believe synchrotron radiation facilities offer a special research environment and in the case of SESAME there are even more special aspects that I will discuss. I will also explore some possibilities related to SESAME s future, including its users, how it can become a truly international lab and how this scientific endeavour can reach out to society at large, beyond scientists.
