Potential Neutron Muon Users asked to give their input

The Research Councils are seeking input from their communities in the development of an updated long-term UK strategy for neutron science.  The UK is making a significant contribution to the construction of the world’s next generation neutron facility, the European Spallation Source (ESS) currently being built in Lund, Sweden, and is a founder member of the ESS consortia.

Neutron facilities support a broad range of scientific disciplines, including physics, chemistry, materials science, biology, engineering and the environmental sciences. They are used to address grand societal challenges, in energy, health care and the environment. Work supported by the facilities provides innovative solutions for industry.

Community input is key, so there will be discussions at Neutron Muon Users Meeting (July 26 - 28). To facilitate these, attendees will be invited to discuss:

  • •What is needed to ensure a sustainable user community for the next 10 years?

You will also be invited to provide comments during the poster session on the following questions:

  • •What neutron future capabilities are needed and which neutron providers are best placed to deliver those capabilities?
  • •What are the barriers to access for new or inexperience users?

If you are unable to attend the NMUM meeting but would like to comment, or if you think of further comments you would like to make, please email neutronstrategy@stfc.ac.uk by 9 September 2016.
