Second BrightnESS Best Practice Workshop on installation aspects of large-scale In-Kind projects

The 2nd BrightnESS ICK Best Practice Workshop, focused on the installation aspects of large scale In-kind projects, took place from the 13th to the 14th of June 2017 at the INFN-LNS (Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics) in Catania, Italy.

The workshop, with over 100 participants, was entirely dedicated to the processes, requirements and preparation for the installation of in-kind contributions (IKC) to the European Spallation Source - ESS. The participants benefited from the experience gained by several other infrastructures around the world; it also was an excellent opportunity for ESS partner institutes and ESS staff from Lund to continue detailed discussions on specific instrument installations. The task aim was to maximise the available knowledge of how to best execute IKC activities among all actors in the ESS Project.

Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste is one of the three Italian Institutions committed to the realization of the Italian In-kind contribution to ESS, together with INFN and CNR. The Elettra`s in kind contributions concern the RF power stations for the spoke cavities, the magnets installed in the linac warm units and in the transfer lines, diagnostics and the power converters for the delivered magnets.


is a European Union-funded project within the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. There are 18 European institutes and universities from 11 countries participating in the BrightnESS partnership.
