ESS – European Spallation Source
The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC), a multi-disciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. ESS is currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, and the Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC) is based in Copenhagen, Denmark. ESS vision is to build and operate the world’s most powerful neutron source, enabling scientific breakthroughs in research related to materials, energy, health and the environment, and addressing some of the most important societal challenges of our time.
The European Spallation Source ERIC has currently 13 members: Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
ESS is a partnership of European nations committed to collectively building and operating a multi-disciplinary research facility providing the world’s most powerful neutron source. The unique capabilities of ESS will both greatly exceed and complement those of today’s leading neutron sources, enabling new opportunities for researchers in materials science.
