ESS (European Spallation Source) data and software centre opens in Copenhagen
September 12, 2016
The Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC) to support the European Spallation Source (ESS) has now opened in Copenhagen. The DMSC is tasked with storing and processing the data produced at ESS.
ESS, which will be the world’s most advanced neutron microscope, is expected to have 400-500 full-time employees and welcome 2,000-5,000 visiting researchers every year. It is expected to be ready for use in 2019, while the research centre is scheduled to be completed by 2025.
By then, DMSC is expected to have some 70 employees, principally in Copenhagen. At the moment DMSC staff are developing software and hardware for the control, analysis, and visualisation of the experiments to be carried out at ESS.
