Jelgavas 1, Riga
The European Spallation Source (ESS) is one of the largest science infrastructure projects being built in Europe today. Designed to generate neutron beams for science, ESS will benefit a broad range of research, from life science to engineering materials, from heritage conservation to magnetism. A Partner Day will be held on 2 June 2016 in Riga, Latvia in collaboration with the Ministry of Science and Education and Latvian Institutes, including the Institute of Solid State Physics.
