The Swedish neutron community have long been asking for a way of contributing in-kind to ESS, and now it is possible. This way, Sweden can build competence in instrumentation and new collaborations develop. In-kind collaborations can give a close connection to the ESS instrument projects and opportunities to be involved in first science at ESS.

Swedish in-kind deliveries to ESS are part of the Swedish membership fee to ESS, and amounts to SEK 90 million during the period 2023 - 2025.
The condition for being able to deliver in-kind to ESS is that the delivery is included in ESS's project plan and budget and that it is based on an agreement between ESS and the delivering partner.
Swedish researchers who wish to deliver personnel or equipment in-kind during 2023 must therefore contact ESS immediately to discuss details regarding scope, timetable, in kind value, risks, acceptance criteria, etc.
