BrightnESS Closing Conference which will take place at the Royal Flemish Academy of Sciences and Arts in Brussels on 22 June 2018.

The Closing Conference will demonstrate the impact of BrightnESS, the 3-year project funded within the European Union's Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020. Set-up to support The European Spallation Source, one of the largest research infrastructure projects being built in Europe today, BrightnESS has not only successfully addressed some of the key challenges faced by ESS, such as detector development and management of in-kind contributions, but also played a vital role in reinforcing the collaborative spirit between our Member and Observer Countries and our partner organisations from across the ERA. 

The Closing Conference is an opportunity to share and celebrate this success with all our stakeholders, including representatives from the European Commission, the 18 project consortium partners, ESS management and governance, as well as all the ESS partners, stakeholders and broader neutron science community.

The programme will include panels on the European Neutron Landscape, Technological Innovation and In-kind Contributions and the ERIC Framework. This occasion will provide a platform to showcase the significance of BrightnESS and long-term sustainability effects on ESS, its partner organisations and the wider research community while facilitating networking opportunities among partners and stakeholders.
