ESS Data Management and Software Centre Opens in Copenhagen

The research facility European Spallation Source (ESS) celebrates on August 26 the opening of the ESS Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC) permanent offices in Copenhagen. The Danish Minister for Higher Education and Science, Ulla Tørnæs, the Prorector for Research and Innovation at the University of Copenhagen, Thomas Bjørnholm, and the ESS Director for Science, Andreas Schreyer, will speak at the ceremony. Representatives from the Capital Region of Denmark, Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) and Danish ESS Partner Universities and Laboratories, such as DTU and Niels Bohr Institute, will among others attend the event.

The Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC) in Copenhagen is a vital part of the European Spallation Source, currently under construction in Lund. DMSC will store and process the experimental data that will be generated at ESS. The DMSC staff is now developing software and hardware for the control, analysis, and visualization of the experiments to be carried out at ESS, in collaboration with partners at universities and research laboratories all over Europe. When ESS is in full operations, by 2025, DMSC will have 60-70 employees, mainly in Copenhagen.

During the ceremony the official DMSC Door plate will be handed over to Mark Hagen, Head of DMSC. We cordially invite members of the media to attend the event and the following reception.
