Canada’s Chief Science Advisor visits the world’s brightest source of neutrons

Mona Nemer, Canada’s Chief Science Advisor, visited the Institut Laue-Langevin in Genoble, France, on May 18. As proposed by the Canadian Neutron Initiative, Canada needs to forge partnerships with foreign facilities following the closure of its domestic source of neutrons at Chalk River, Ontario on March 31, 2018. 

The visit is the latest in interactions between European neutron facilities and representatives of the Canadian user community or the Canadian government.

Her visit was later described in this french language radio interview about the Institut Laue-Langevin.
