The European Spallation Source ERIC (ESS) is a multi-disciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. The vision of ESS is to build and operate the world’s most powerful neutron source, enabling scientific breakthroughs in research related to materials, energy, health and the environment, and addressing some of the most important societal challenges of our time.

BrightnESS-2 is a European Union-funded project within the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. BrightnESS² is an integrated program in support of the long-term sustainability of the European Spallation Source ERIC (ESS) in Lund, Sweden, its community, and the network of neutron sources in Europe.

The European Intergovernmental Research Organisation forum (EIROforum) brings together eight of Europe’s largest research organisations. It is the mission of EIROforum to combine the resources, facilities and expertise of its member organisations to support European science in reaching its full potential. EIROforum simplifies and facilitates interactions with the European Commission and other organs of the European Union, national governments, industry, science teachers, students and journalists.

Founded in 1974, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences – an intergovernmental organisation with more than 80 independent research groups covering the spectrum of molecular biology. It operates across six sites: Heidelberg, Barcelona, Hamburg, Grenoble, Rome and EMBL-EBI Hinxton.

European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) provides a unique range of particle accelerator facilities to researchers, to advance the boundaries of human knowledge. The work carried out at CERN helps to uncover what the universe is made of and how it works. Established in 1954, the Laboratory has become a prime example of international collaboration.

European Southern Observatory (ESO) is the foremost intergovernmental astronomy organisation in Europe and the world’s most productive astronomical observatory. ESO provides state-of-the-art research facilities to astronomers. ESO is building the 39-metre Extremely Large Telescope, the ELT, which will become “the world’s biggest eye on the sky”.

The main objective of Fédération Française de Diffusion Neutronique (2FDN) is to bring together professionals working in the field of neutron scattering, provide access to neutrons for the French community, and jointly define a strategy for research using neutrons. This implies both preserving and expanding the current competencies of the community in order to address societal challenges through excellent and innovative research.

Fusion for Energy (F4E) is the European Union organisation managing Europe’s contribution to ITER— the biggest scientific experiment on the path to fusion energy. This partnership of seven parties (China, Europe, Japan, India, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and the USA), represents half of the world’s population and 80% of the global GDP.

ITER ("The Way" in Latin) is one of the most ambitious energy projects in the world today. In southern France, 35 nations* are collaborating to build the world's largest tokamak, a magnetic fusion device that has been designed to prove the feasibility of fusion as a large-scale and carbon-free source of energy based on the same principle that powers our Sun and stars.

Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System (SIOS) is an international observing system for long-term measurements in and around the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard addressing Earth System Science questions. SIOS integrates the existing distributed observational infrastructure and generates added value for all partners beyond what their individual capacities can provide.

RI.Logistica Programme Committee contact at SIOS: Inger Jennings
