ESS Data Management and Software Center (DMSC) will move from Copenhagen to DTU Lyngby Campus in 2024. The first move will begin in February 2024 and is expected to be completed in April 2024.
DMSC is part of the European Spallation Source (ESS), which is an advanced research facility under construction in Lund, Sweden. ESS uses neutrons to gain deep insight into materials and systems in physics, chemistry, geology, biology and medicine.
DMSC builds servers and software to support researchers and industry users to have the right tools to interpret and understand data from their experiments. DMSC currently employs around 35 specialists who, among other things, provide services and solutions for carrying out scientific experiments. This includes the provision of software and hardware as well as the collection, streaming, reduction, analysis and management of data. During the coming years, DMSC is expected to employ approximately 60 people.
“We look forward to welcoming DMSC. And we look forward to the good synergy that will develop between DTU and DMSC. There are many interconnection points between our institutions. For example, DTU has extensive experience in handling and analyzing large amounts of data , we have solid international collaborations, we embrace academics, and we have a long tradition of working across disciplines,’ says DTU Provost Rasmus Larsen, who also emphasizes that DMSC and ESS in Lund offer exciting opportunities for DTU’s students .
Among DTU’s strengths is a strong computer science and data science environment, which includes Computerome, which is one of Scandinavia’s largest High-Performance Computing clusters dedicated to life science research. Computerome is established in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen (KU). Furthermore, DTU, KU and Lund University collaborate on data analysis in the Center for Quantification of Image Data for trials at MAXIV.
In addition, DTU has strong research environments in e.g. materials, life science, energy, environmental technology, quantum technology and specifically in imaging, where researchers develop new techniques to record three-dimensional images of the internal structure and dynamics of materials – both with the help of X-rays and with the help of neutrons.
