The ESRF Director General, W.G. Stirling, welcomed the Delegation and made a general presentation of the ESRF, and the Head of the Industrial and Commercial Unit (ICU), M. Rodriguez Castellano, presented our industrial and commercial relations. A guided tour was then organised with the visit of three beamlines: ID24 (S. Pascarelli), ID23 (S. McSweeney and his colleagues) and ID21 (J. Susini). The Jordanian Delegation had the opportunity to see how a synchrotron works and what kind of experiments can be performed, before the installation of the synchrotron SESAME in Jordan. The visit to Grenoble of this University was also motivated by the signature of a cooperation agreement with the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce - Grenoble Ecole de Management.
