Scientific Advisory Committee

The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) is an independent advisory committee providing advice and giving recommendations to the ESS project.

The Scientific Advisory Committee independently assesses the scientific goals and the overall layout, and advises on the scientific objectives, of ESS.

The SAC provides independent advice, in particular, on all relevant scientific and technical issues related to the instrument suite and the desired characteristics of the neutron beams and the accelerator performance, as well as facilities for scientific support and the scientific operation of the facility.

The SAC is composed of potential users from the science communities that will use ESS neutron beams and scientists with expertise in neutron scattering methods, and represents the user community at large.

The SAC reports to the European Spallation Source ERIC Council. Members of the SAC are outstanding scientists not employed by or otherwise immediately connected with ESS. The members of the SAC and its Chair are appointed by the Council.
