On May 16th 2017 SwedNess had it's kick-off together with NNSP (Nordic Neutron Science Programme) at Uppsala University. Everyone was there including people from all involved Universities, people from SSF (the founding agency for SwedNess) and Nordforsk (the founding agency for NNSP). Furthermore, Lena Ek, who is appointed by the Swedish government as a coordinator for ESS, was also invited and held a short talk as well as Andreas Schreyer, director of science at ESS.
