The user program is the heart of the facility. Still in its infancy, the Scientific Coordination and User Office is developing a system that ensures transparent access modes, links users to instruments and maximises ESS scientific impact.
Operational management of the scientific research programme, maintaining databases, streamlining access and schedule, work environment.
Organising user meetings, gathering feedback, industrial liaison.
Coordination of facility-wide scientific activities
Science Focus Areas
Engineering Materials, Geosciences, Archeology & Heritage Conservation and Fast Neutron Applications
In situ, in operandi and non-destructive probing with neutrons.
Some of the most exciting discoveries in a generation are being made with neutron science.
ESS will enable some areas of life science, medical and pharmacological research to investigate with neutrons for the first time.
A fundamental part of ESS. The Standard Model is not what it used to be.
