    ILL and ESS European Users Meeting
    10 to 12 October 2018, Grenoble

    The neutron landscape in Europe is going through a period of dramatic change. Two major, national facilities will close by 2020 while substantial investment in a new European facility, ESS, will deliver transformative capabilities and extend the technique to new domains by the middle of the next decade. After the Millennium upgrade programmes, ILL is currently executing phase one of the Endurance programme to further enhance its instruments and infrastructure and is now preparing a second, more extensive phase of Endurance that will be the basis of future operations well beyond 2023.
    The future of neutron scattering is bright, but both the landscape of facilities and the community of users must take a proactive and strategic approach to navigating and managing these changes in a holistic way, in order to ensure the sustainability and vitality of this important research technique.
    ILL and ESS therefore feel that it is timely to review recent achievements and the current status and, above all, look forward to new scientific opportunities with neutrons for the next decade.
    The User Meeting programme foresees ten keynote speakers on future directions in neutron science, as well as reports on recent achievements and ongoing work at ILL and ESS. There will be ‘focus sessions’ in the User Meeting to highlight several key techniques while satellite workshop events, in parallel with the User Meeting, will allow participants to delve deeper into specific areas of neutron science.

  • About the ILL

    About The ILL

     The Institut Laue Langevin (ILL) - the European neutron source - is at the leading edge of neutron science and technology. Located in Grenoble, France, it operates the most intense continuous neutron source in the world. As a service institute, the ILL makes its facilities and expertise available to visiting scientists. Every year, about 2000 researchers from more than 30 countries visit the ILL and about 800 experiments are performed annually. Research focuses primarily on fundamental science in
    a variety of fields of science.

    About the ESS

      About The ESS


    The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a multi-disciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful pulsed neutron source. It’s currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, by a wide European collaboration. ESS will deliver transformative capabilities and extend the technique to new domains of science.
