ESS was honoured to welcome Ambassadors to Sweden during a visit organised by the Czech Presidency
The group included Ambassadors from 18 European countries, made up of both ESS member and non-member countries, and was an opportunity for those taking part to learn more about the facility and the project.
Visits of this kind are not only helpful in giving an insight into ESS and the progress being made, but also enhance scientific cooperation.
Helmut Schober, ESS Director General, gave the guests a presentation on ESS, informing them about the facility and its future use. This was followed by a site tour where they got to see the facililty first hand, which was appreciated by all.
The Presidency of the EU Council is a right, and a task, resulting from EU membership. Each presidency term is for six months, and is carried out on the basis of equality and rotation within the Member States. With Sweden poised to take over the Presidency at the beginning of 2023, it was also an important event with the potential to lead to new bilateral visits during the Swedish Presidency next year.
