MAX IV and ESS as engines for breakthrough science
The discussion focused on how the research facilities function as engines for breakthroughs in science. Neutron and synchrotron light-based science has the potential to address some of our most pressing global challenges, such as energy supply, disease, nutrition, and health.
While many breakthroughs have been made at facilities such as MAX IV and ESS in the past, the future is unwritten. The crucial question is, how will these facilities deliver on taxpayers’ hopes and investments?
