The ESS Collaborations

As a large and advanced science facility, the European Spallation Source ERIC requires expert competences represented by professionals from all over the world.

In-Kind Contributions to the Construction of ESS

Many of our partner research institutes, universities, and laboratories are individually responsible for leading one or several work packages, each containing multiple work units, with leadership distributed among all participants. ESS's partners are actively engaged in scientific and technical research and development, manufacturing, delivery and installation in the project to build ESS.
