After the site tour, an informal seminar was held. CHEN Hesheng gave a talk on the CSNS Project. He commented that the CSNS has provided a good opportunity for the Hong Kong science circles to develop and study neutron science. CSNS hopes to strengthen its cooperation with the Hong Kong science circles and welcomes the Hong Kong universities to build “Hong Kong Spectrometer” at CSNS. A talk about the CSNS spectrometer in the first phase and its future plans was given by Liang Tianjiao.

WANG Xunli from the City University of Hong Kong delivered a talk on the “Community Development and Hong Kong’s Participation at CSNS”. In his talk, he suggested uniting the potential users of the four Hong Kong universities to push the planning and construction of the“Hong Kong Spectrometer”. Both sides discussed the collaboration. The HK guests spoke highly of the CSNS developments and its role in promoting neutron science and applications. President CHEN expressed that the HKUST would try its best to look for financial support and to actively communicate with the HK SAR Government, promoting the early realization of the dream of the HK science circles to build the “Hong Kong Spectrometer at CSNS.
