BrightnESS2 Workshop

The BrightnESS2 Workshop was hosted by iThemba LABS on 12-14 August.

BrightnESS2 ( is an integrated program in support of long-term sustainability of ESS, its community, and the network of neutron sources in Europe.

The European Spallation Source (ESS) under construction in Lund, Sweden, is a partnership of countries committed to the goal of building and operating the world leading facility for research using neutrons. South African interest in contributing in the BrightnESS2 program stems from the fact that it has a long history of research using neutrons provided by the two key national facilities, NRF/iThemba LABS and Necsa. The workshop was aimed at South African based researchers who are interested in exploring the possibility of using the ESS facilities in the future.
