Research plan / constellation
When ESS is in full operation in 2025, Sweden needs to take full advantage with research that exploits the new opportunities. The graduate school that SSF has established promotes development of relevant research and training of researchers. Six Swedish Universities form a consortium to for these activities that use and develop neutron scattering techniques. The opportunities for training are made available to the Swedish scientific community as a whole.
Sweden has a vigorous community of researchers that exploit neutrons: current work has centred on activities in solid state chemistry, magnetism and soft matter. The latter topic provides an interface to a growing community that has become engaged with topics such as biomaterials and the challenges of maintaining the environment. The PhD research projects consolidate and expand these themes.
