"We are to provide EU funding to ESS in Lund in order to strengthen research, technological development and innovation," says Gunilla Nordlöf, Director General at Tilllväxtverket. "The unique research effort enabled by the European Spallation Source ERIC means exciting collaborations that will attract researchers and businesses nationally, within the EU, and internationally."
