World-leading research facilities

Two of the world’s foremost research facilities for materials research and life sciences are established in Lund – the synchrotron radiation facility MAX IV and the European Spallation Source (ESS), the world’s most powerful neutron source, which will be fully operational by the end of 2027.

These facilities together with the new Lund University campus in Science Village will constitute a highly visible, world-leading center for research in materials and life sciences, cultural heritage and environmental science.
