Information meeting on ESS

The Deans of SCIENCE, PHARMA, LIFE, and the Medical Faculty invite all KU-employees, students, and other interested to an information meeting on the planned European Spallation Source (ESS). This facility will become the world leading source of neutrons for materials research in a broad sense. ESS may be placed in Lund (S), next to the planned leading synchrotron-Xray source Max-IV.
The meeting will be in English. Level of the presentations will be for M.Sc./Ph.D. students and non-experts.
