Things to keep in mind when building a 600m long microscope

The European Spallation Source (ESS), research facility based on the world’s most powerful neutron source, is one of the largest science and technology infrastructure projects being built today. It features the most powerful linear proton accelerator ever built, a five-tonne, helium-cooled tungsten target wheel, 22 state-of-the-art neutron instruments, a suite of laboratories, and a supercomputing data management and software development centre. Scientists and engineers from more than 100 institutes from all around the world are collaborating to construct the facility, and having a well-performing suite of collaboration tools is therefore crucial.

Learn how ESS is using Atlassian’s products, including Insight, to solve a number of problems on the way towards enabling scientific breakthroughs related to materials, energy, health and the environment.
