Nordic Neutron Meeting 2019

Neutrons for Sustainable Society

The construction of the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Scandinavia gives researchers within the Nordic region a unique opportunity. The ESS will significantly enhance the possibilities for conducting neutron investigations.

The new capabilities at the ESS will not only give potential for conducting forefront basic research, but also allow to contribute with knowledge and solutions to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The workshop at Aarhus University will focus on the potential for neutrons to contribute to a sustainable future.

Participation is free.
