Swedish in-kind to ESS

The Swedish neutron community have long been asking for a way of contributing in-kind to ESS, and now it is possible. This way, Sweden can build competence in instrumentation and new collaborations develop. In-kind collaborations can give a close connection to the ESS instrument projects and opportunities to be involved in first science at ESS.

The application process is open!

Although the ESS cost book, which will define possible in-kind scope, is currently being developed it is important to start discussions with ESS now in order to meet the deadlines. Therefore, Swedish scientists interested in delivering staff or equipment in-kind need to contact ESS immediately to discuss details concerning scope, timing, cost-book value, risk, acceptance criteria, etc.
