Four Big Science facilities and consortiums have been accepted to be part of BSBF2022 as Affiliated Big Science organisations (ABSOs), as a result of the call for ABSOs opened early this year. The accepted institutions are the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC-CNS), Cherenkov Telescope Array Observatory (CTAO), Divertor Tokamak Test facility (DTT) and the Test Infrastructure and Accelerator Research Area Project (TIARA).
With the addition of these new affiliated partners, BSBF2022 will feature a total of eight ABSOs belonging to the ESFRI Physical Sciences and Engineering, Energy and Computing Domains. These four organisations join the previous four institutions selected in the previous Call for ABSOs, namely the European Solar Telescope (EST), the Multipurpose hYbrid Research Reactor for High-tech Applications (MYRRHA), the League of European Accelerator- based Photon Sources (LEAPS) and ESS Bilbao. All eight ABSOs will present their projects and procurement plans in two dedicated parallel sessions and will be available for networking with industry throughout all the congress.
