16:40 Presentation by Henrik Madsen, Development Officer, Business and Internationalisation ,The Capital Region of Denmark

16:45 Expectations and benefits for UCPH, by Head of Neutron Science Arno Hiess, ESS

Followed by reception

Two of the world’s largest research infrastructures are being established in the Oresund Region where they will be attracting world-leading researchers and benefit the Capital Region of Denmark, both academically and industrially. The MAX IV X-ray source and the European Spallation Source (ESS) neutron source have complementary properties, which combined offer unique possibilities for studying all types of materials. University of Copenhagen is busy preparing for optimum use of the two research infrastructures.
