Neutron Science in Europe
13 June 2022
For many years Europe has had a powerful ecosystem of neutron facilities that was the envy of the world; supporting an expert community of researchers, and delivering science, innovation and competitive advantage through economic impact for European society. However, the European neutron ecosystem is experiencing a period of significant change and has been destabilised following the closure of a number of facilities.
Neutron Science in Europe, published as a joint initiative of the BrightnESS2 project and LENS Initiative, presents the current landscape for neutrons in Europe and addresses the challenges and opportunities for European neutron science to remain a key contributor in addressing current and future societal challenges.
