Due to the pandemic, the event has been postponed to 17 August 2022.

The Innovation Day focus on the possibilities that arise when ESS (European Spallation Source) starts operation. The world class research facility for materials research, will give Swedish and Nordic industries and researchers ground-breaking possibilities for investigating materials on a molecular and atomic level.

You are cordially invited to participate and take part in discussions on how the new facility can be of most value. A select and limited number of participants have been invited to take an active part in the dialogue, sharing knowledge, insights and experience with colleagues from different sectors of Swedish industry.

We started with a series of digital workshops, leading up to the Innovation Day in Västerås in January. The workshops will set the basis for the discussion in plenum on the Innovation Day.

The topics are

  • What is ESS – How industry and research infrastructure connect and collaborate
  • Circulating the material world
  • Transforming and storing energy
  • Reaching warp speed data processing
  • Expanding life sciences

The innovation day is kindly supported by and co-organised with ABB.

Update December: The meeting in Västerås will be organised to be Covid safe. We will provide rapid test kits and would appreciate that everyone is vaccinated. Please send a mail to innovationday@ess.eu if you have any questions or concerns.


ESS, the European Spallation Source, is a multi-disciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. The facility is currently under construction and will provide unique research opportunities within materials research for thousands of scientists from all over the world, enabling scientific breakthroughs addressing some of the most important societal challenges of our time in research related to materials, energy, health and the environment.

The research infrastructure, owned by 13 European nations, is located in Lund, and together with MaxIV offering an unparalleled opportunity for research utilising both technologies.
