The aim of the workshop was to evaluate the status of the IK Contribution of individual partner of South-East Hub, to share experience and propose improvements to future activity.  During the meeting the detailed status of the different Work Unit, in Italy and Hungary, was presented. Various aspects involving administrative procedures were thoroughly discussed in order to spread as much as possible the information within the partners of the Hub and to share experience and lessons learned (i.e.documentaion repository implementation, QA/QC from previous experience to be applied to th IKC, Project Quality Plan).


BrightnESS is a European Union-funded H2020 project in which 18 European institutes and universities from 11 countries participate. The aim is to support the construction of the European Spallation Source (ESS; www.esss.se) in key technical areas and in-kind coordination. ESS is a multi-disciplinary research centre based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. This new facility will be up to 100 times brighter than today's leading facilities. The H2020 grant provides resources for the development, testing and optimisation of ESS’s state-of-the-art technologies. It also supports the research infrastructure to move from its initial planning phase to the implementation phase, as well as to maintain alignment between the physical construction of the site and the development and delivery of vital equipment and components.
