Prizes for outstanding researchers
The conference concluded with the presentation of the Neutron Instrumentation and Innovation Award to Alessandro Tengattini, the Erwin Felix Lewy Bertaut Award to Matilde Saura-Múzquiz, and the Walter Hälg Award to Toby Perring. All three have made major contributions to the field of neutron research, some early in their careers, which have now been recognized.
The closing speech was given by the Scientific Director of the FRM II Research Neutron Source and MLZ, Prof. Dr. Peter Müller-Buschbaum. Afterwards, the participants explored the neutron source in guided tours.
The next conference of the field will be the International Conference on Neutron Scattering ICNS 2025 in Copenhagen. A call for applications to host ECNS 2027 will be published soon by the European Neutron Scattering Association.
In addition, a conference video was created, which can be found on YouTube: ECNS2023 – Impressions of the European conference on neutron scattering
