The Nordic Particle Accelerator Project (NPAP) team, together with our hosts at ESS, invite you to a dialogue event at the heart of the ESS and the MAX IV Laboratory facilities - currently hosting the most powerful synchrotron light source and neutron source in the world. You will listen to presentations and take part in discussions concerning future needs of knowledge and innovation in accelerator technology. We present the NPAP’s intellectual outputs and launch our first Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in accelerator physics and technology.

The NPAP is founded on a three year transnational effort, and is the first step in making Lund an international center for education in accelerator technology. The project has developed educational resources that contribute to a broaden knowledge and understanding of accelerator technology among academy, research institutes, hospitals, companies including the broader community. The dialogue event is the start of the next phase in our development of the center. Let's take the first step through dialogue together!



Attendance is free. Lunch and refreshments are included as well as transport from Lund Cathedral and ESS’s facilities at 9.00 and back (in accord with the schedule for the tour of the facilities).
