second ESS update in the national Physics magazine


The ESS on the front page of the Dutch Physics magazine!

ESS PostDoc positions: recruited and at work.

From a substantial list of participants from all-over the world we have selected two excellent scientists to work on the Dutch contribution to the ESS. One of the two scientists just started this month and the other one will start within a month time. There’s lots of work for them to do!

Neutron for Energy workshop: a great succes.

The Neutrons for Energy, ESS Science Symposium in September 2012 in Delft was a great success! Co-organized by the European Spallation Source and the TU Delft.

Meeting with LLB on in-kind contributions to the ESS

Today starts a 2-day meeting with a group of scientists from the LLB in Saclay, France, to investigate the possibilities to coorporate on the in-kind contribution to the ESS. We have already submitted a work-package on the Dutch in-kind contribution to the European Spallation Source and a collaboration with the LLB would be benefitial for both laboratories.
