NPI of the CAS becomes a member of the European neutron consortium LENS

12. 12. 2022

At the beginning of December, the Council of the strategic consortium LENS (League of Advanced European Neutron Sources), founded in 2018 by nine leading European neutron facilities, approved the application of the NPI of the CAS for membership in this organization.

After the Budapest Neutron Centre, NPI is only the second institution from Central-Eastern Europe in the LENS. Since then, the NPI will have two representatives in the LENS Council: NPI director Ondřej Svoboda and coordinator of the Czech participation in the construction of the European Spallation Source (ESS) neutron facility Petr Lukáš.

The next regular meeting of LENS will take place on March 20, 2023 in Garching near Munich at the ECNS (European Conference on Neutron Scattering), on the premises of the Technical University of Munich, where NPI will present its neutron facilities.
