Relevance of potential research to the Technology Foresight programme

The ISIS second target station will be ideally placed to make a major contributions to future science and technology.

These contributions are linked directly to the major themes and priorities identified in the 1994-1999 UK Technology Foresight exercise - a good indication of the relevance of the potential research programme.
