SNSS support initiative to build instrumentation at ESS


Swedish researchers want to develop and build instruments at ESS, including the world-wide GISANS instrument - which can only be achieved thanks to access to the world's most powerful neutron source, ESS. According to the ESS Scientific Council, the design and financing of instruments at ESS is urgent. The Swedish Neutron Scattering Society (SNSS) therefore proposes that Swedish industry merge and finance instrument through foundation, PPP, investment fund or other capitalization in cooperation with government research financiers and foundations. 

The Centre for Neutron Scattering welcomes the support from the Swedish Neutron Scattering Society for the initiative to build instrumentation at ESS. The Centre is actively engaged in the plans for GISANS. 

GISANS = Grazing Incidence Small Angle Neutron Scattering 
PPP = Public Private Partnership
