Summary, in English

The ESSνSB project aims to produce a neutrino beam of unique intensity for a long-baseline oscillation measurement of CP-violation in the leptonic sector. The project, supported within the H2020 framework programme of the European Union, is currently in a conceptual design study phase, and work is ongoing within the project to develop viable solutions for the upgrade of the linear accelerator of the European Spallation Source (ESS), for the associated ring accumulator and the high-power target stations, as well as to establish solutions for the near and far detectors. The unique strength of the project lies in the capability to produce a neutrino beam that is intense enough to place the far detector at the second oscillation maximum. Such a placement will reduce the sensitivity of the experiment to systematic errors, which, due to the recently established value of the neutrino mixing angle θ13, is now known to limit the measurement precision at the first oscillation maximum. In this paper we outline the basic components of the project and discuss the status of the ongoing conceptual design study.
