Incorporated into the rural landscape of southern Sweden, the construction of the various ESS buildings and facilities comprises one of the largest active infrastructure projects in Europe.
Thirteen Founding Member nations, around 40 European in-kind partners and more than 130 global institutions are all cooperating to build the world's next-generation neutron source.
The European Spallation Source broke ground on a Greenfield site in 2014, but the careful planning of every aspect of the large complex has been in the works far longer, and continues today.
The architecture and design of ESS will reflect and contribute to the organisation’s core values: excellence, collaboration, openness and sustainability.
Travel back through time with Perry Nordeng's monthly aerial photographs and experience this unique bird's eye view of the project.
ESS has three construction site webcams. The images are updated at 10-minute intervals.
