Nordic ESS-conference: Scandic Hotel, Vester Søgade, Copenhagen, 7th December 2015 9.30 – 16.00

Nordic Conference - European Spallation Source (ESS) Challenges and opportunities for Nordic Research and Innovation

 The European Spallation Source (ESS) is presently under construction in Lund, with ESS Data Management and Software Center located in Copenhagen. The facility will provide unprecedented neutron scattering capabilities, promising a great boost in science, technology and innovation within materials and biosystems. Constituting the host region, the Nordic countries are in a position to take maximal advantage of the scientific and industrial possibilities araising in relation to ESS.

The conference invites representatives from the Nordic education and research ministries, research councils and funding agencies, universities as well as industrial organization to discuss long-term scientific and industrial opportunities and collaborative possibilities in relation to ESS.

The conference is organized by The Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation (DASTI) in collaboration with NordForsk as part of the Danish presidency in the Nordic Council of Ministers 2015. The conference will also celebrate the kick-off for the newly established Nordic Neutron Research Program (NNRP).
