The European Spallation Source ERIC (ESS) is a multi-disciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. The vision of ESS is to build and operate the world’s most powerful neutron source, enabling scientific breakthroughs in research related to materials, energy, health and the environment, and addressing some of the most important societal challenges of our time.

European XFEL (EU XFEL)generates extremely intense X-ray flashes used by researchers from all over the world. The flashes are produced in underground tunnels and allow scientists to map atomic details of viruses, film chemical reactions, and study processes in the interior of planets.

European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) provides a unique range of particle accelerator facilities to researchers, to advance the boundaries of human knowledge. The work carried out at CERN helps to uncover what the universe is made of and how it works. Established in 1954, the Laboratory has become a prime example of international collaboration.

Fusion for Energy (F4E) is the European Union organisation managing Europe’s contribution to ITER— the biggest scientific experiment on the path to fusion energy. This partnership of seven parties (China, Europe, Japan, India, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and the USA), represents half of the world’s population and 80% of the global GDP.
