In preparation of the IKON-2 Meeting in Malmö: Updated Work-Packages

The Dutch Work-Packages for the design update of the ESS will be presented at the next in Kind Contribution Meeting IKON-2 in Malmö February 9 and 10. The updated description of these Work-Packages can be found here

the latest ESS-Science Workshop : Neutrons for Food

This was a very interesting ESS Science workshop, sponsored by the ESS and co-organized by Erik van den Linden (Wageningen University) and Wim Bouwman (TU Delft) and sponsored by the ESS, Lund. For more information visit the webpages of the workshop:

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.
