In 2017 DanScatt developed a strategy for 2017-2025, which describes the Danish use, prioritizes between memberships and recommends the most effective activities aimed at accessing facilities.
The primary recommendations are:
- Continued membership of the internationally leading facilities within the three areas: ESRF (synchrotron based research), EU-XFEL (XFEL based research) and ILL (neutron based research). From 2023 onwards, the ESS will gradually take over the role of ILL.
- Strategic use of MAX IV and PSI as facilities that play a crucial role in relation to volume, training of new users, regional initiatives, and support of the strategic and industry-related research.
- Supporting the national ESS strategy focusing on the establishment of lighthouses and one capacity expansion in the neutron range, from about 120 users today to approx. 300 users in 2025
