Within the next ten years two internationally leading large-scale facilities for structural analysis will be established close to the Copenhagen region. These are the MAX IV Synchrotron facility and the European Spallation Source (ESS), both based in Lund, Sweden. In particular, the ESS will be the world-leading facility within neutron-based structural analysis. It will provide opportunities for industry and academia that are uniquely suited to solve questions within medical and pharmaceutical sciences and related basic natural sciences.
The use of these facilities may give rise to uncertainties for their academic and industrial users and beneficiaries, both organizational and legal. In order to minimize the possible negative impact such uncertainties, and also to ensure good governance of facilities, the University of Copenhagen (UCPH) has decided to set up a number of post doc research projects focusing on these problems. In the preparation of these projects, the research team would like to evaluate the guidelines and experiences from comparable research facilities in the US, Europe, Brazil and Japan.
The first step in this endeavour is to visit the Institut Laue-Langevin (the ILL) and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (the ESRF) to get a first hand impression and overview of these and related issues such as they can be perceived from an institution already running such a facility. The visiting team from UCPH consists of
 Professor Sine Larsen, Department of Chemistry, SCIENCE,
 Professor Mads Bryde Andersen, and
 Associate professor Timo Minssen, the two latter from the Faculty of Law
