ESS & MAX IV: Cross Border Science and Society was a three-year project (ending on August 31, 2018) involving 27 different partners within the ÖKS region. The aim of the project was for the region to be internationally leading in the use of neutrons and synchrotrons light by focusing on younger researchers. A primary goal was to increase the regional potential to exploit the unique large-scale research facilities ESS and MAX IV in the future.

The subproject MAX4ESSFUN involves 10 partner organizations, 8 universities (University of Copenhagen, Lund University, Chalmers University of Technology, University of Gothenburg, Malmö University, University of Oslo, Technical University of Denmark, Aarhus University) together with ESS and MAX IV. The subproject aimed to stimulate collaborative research across national borders using neutrons and synchrotron light. It built on research strengths in the region and developing new research areas through regional synergies is an important goal.

The program provides direct support for PhD student and postdoc projects, in addition to an educational package of courses, workshops and summer schools.
