On-going projects

» Integrated Infrastructure Initiative for Neutron Scattering and Muon Spectroscopy (NMI3)

NMI3 is a consortium of 18 partner organisations from 12 European countries, including 8 facilities. NMI3 includes all major facilities in the fields of neutron scattering and muon spectroscopy, opening the way for a more concerted, and thus more efficient, use of the existing infrastructure; the ultimate aim being a more strategic approach to future developments and increased European competitiveness in this area.

The aim of the NMI3 is to facilitate the pan-European coordination of neutron scattering and muon spectroscopy research activities, by integrating all the research infrastructures in these fields within the European Research Area.

» Muon Spectroscopy of Excited States (MuSES)

MuSES is an ERC funded project “Muon Spectroscopy of Excited States”.

» New Opportunites for Better User Group Software (NOBUGS)

The term NOBUGS is a shorthand for New Opportunities for Better User Group Software. The aim of NOBUGS is to foster the collaboration between IT professionals working for X-ray, muon and neutron facilities. The intended benefit of this collaboration is better data acquisition and analysis software which helps user to get the most out of their experiments at such expensive facilities. The activities of the NOBUGS group are supervised by an international advisory committee.

The activities of the NOBUGS group include but are not limited to:

  • The organisation of the NOBUGS Conference
  • Fostering collaboration between facilities on software projects.
  • Act as a lobbying body for better scientific software
