The Spain XFEL Hub has created a “beamtime allocation group (BAG)” proposal at XALOC beamline at ALBA synchrotron radiation source, which will be exclusive for serial synchrotron crystallography (SSX) experiments. The BAG will be run every year and is awarded 12 shifts (could be increase to 15 shifts in case there is a high demand).

The XFEL Hub team along with XALOC staff have recently implemented the SSX with viscous jets at XALOC beamtime (Botha et al, 2021; paper in preparation).
