More than 100 European researchers in neutron scattering meet in Copenhagen
More than 100 European researchers in neutron scattering meet in Copenhagen these days to network as partners in SINE2020.
The European Commission has granted SINE2020, which will be implemented within the framework of Horizon2020 in the course of the next 4 years. The grant worth EUR 12 million, approx. DKK 90 million, is being coordinated by the ILL, Institut Laue-Langevin, and implemented with 18 partners including University of Copenhagen and ESS.
The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) is the world's leading facility in neutron science and technology. It operates the most intense neutron source on earth in Grenoble in the south-east of France.
Neutron scattering is a unique, major analytical technique. Since intense neutron beams are only available in central research facilities, European projects are essential to integrate these into an ecosystem which sustains the vibrant, world-leading European neutron community. SINE2020 is a new project in Horizon 2020 which will help prepare Europe for its future flagship facility (ESS – the European Spallation Source) and, through focus on data analysis and innovation, enhance the industry use of neutrons in particular.
