    Neutrons for the Life Science Industry

     – How can your R&D benefit from ESS?

    In our region there is a construction going on for the world’s most powerful pulsed neutron source. It is currently being build in Lund, Sweden.

    The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a multi-disciplinary research facility enabling new opportunities for researchers across the spectrum of scientific discovery, including life sciences, energy, environmental technology, cultural heritage and fundamental physics. 

    To make sure that the Life Science Industry takes advantage of this opportunity, Medicon Valley Alliance with cooperation of the European Spallation Source invites you to take part in this seminar.

    Participants will have the opportunity to learn what big science facilities like ESS can offer to industry and how companies can enhance their research capacity to carry out experiments at these facilities. The event will also address strategic market players, which have their own research infrastructure, as human capital transfers and knowledge transfers are crucial for further development within individual branches of industry.
