NMI3 WP leaders meet to discuss the project’s future

Presentation of work progress and valuable discussions at the NMI3 Business Meeting

*Progress of the work packages* NMI3 is a European consortium of 18 partner organisations from 12 countries, including all major facilities in the fields of neutron scattering and muon spectroscopy. It is funded by the European Commission through the FP7. On Friday November 29, the leaders of the NMI3 Work Packages (WP) have met at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching. The aim was to present the progress of the WP’s and receive feedback from other members as well as from the Advisory Committee. We were glad to see that all the WP’s are on the good way to comply with the objectives proposed in the beginning of the project, in February 2012. *Looking to Horizon 2020* In the afternoon, Mark Johnson – the NMI3 coordinator – asked the representative of each facility to express their views on the possible continuation of NMI3 throughout the European Commission Framework Programme Horizon 2020 . Everyone present agreed that NMI3 prompts collaboration between European neutron and muon researchers and facilitating users’ access to the facilities. The consortium contributes to scientific developments, valuable to science both at European and international level. Neutrons and muons are valuable to investigate properties of a wide range of materials used for health and life sciences, information technologies, nanotechnologies, environmental science, and other scientific fields, and therefore future lack of funding would have a negative impact in European science. During the next months all the members will analyse their possibilities.
