The Swedish Research Council and the European Spallation Source ERIC (ESS) organised a digital information meeting on the process forward for Swedish in-kind contributions to ESS. 


17 December 2021




Swedish Research Council and ESS

Envisioned process for the allocation of in-kind contributions

As part of additional Swedish funding to ESS, the Swedish Research Council is now making up to 150 MSEK available for a Swedish in-kind program for ESS during 2021–2025, with up to 30 MSEK per year. The premises for Swedish in-kind contributions are strongly dependent on the ongoing re-baselining plan at ESS and the associated cost book that is still to be decided.

During the information meeting the Swedish Research Council and ESS would jointly like to inform about the envisioned process for the allocation of in-kind contributions for the period 2022–2025 with all interested parties.
