Europe’s Research Infrastructures (RIs) enable major scientific breakthrough and incubate the discoveries that foster innovation. Given the overwhelming public consensus on the need to address the societal challenges facing Europe and the world, RIs must embrace the responsibility to create and sustain societal impact. Within this context, the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures’ (ESFRI) “Strategic Report on Research Infrastructures” (Roadmap 2018) recommends that European RIs establish effective means to determine their economic and wider social value, and prioritise the development of indicators and measures that help to establish causality between RIs and socio-economic impact (SEI). Once fully operational, the European Spallation Source (ESS) ERIC will be an international, multidisciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. The facility is under construction in Lund, Sweden, with its Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC) located nearby in Copenhagen, Denmark.
