Work Package 9
Since 2016, FAIR principles to make scientific data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (www.go-fair.org) have been gaining increasing support as part of a broad “open science” movement. HighNESS also aims to abide by the principles, so that any tools and data created in WP2 on software and WP4 on moderators design can be exploited by other researchers in the neutron-scattering community for other projects. Led by the ESS, this work package will:
Drawing input from eight European research institutions, and with a budget of €3m over three years from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, the project will produce a groundbreaking design for a second source of ESS neutrons. As a result, it will show how the ESS can be not only the most brilliant neutron source in the world, but also the most intense, able to probe everyday materials and tackle fundamental questions in physics with up to 1,000 times the sensitivity found anywhere else.
