The European spallation source is being built in Lund in Sweden. The project started in 2013 with site preparations starting already in summer 2013. The accelerator tunnel was completed in April 2016 and first infrastructure for the cryoplant is now being installed. The installation of the the accelerating structures and RF sources will start in 2017 with the goal to have first beam at 572 MeV in 2019. The project is financed through in-kind contributions from the member states which is a challenge and an opportunity. The accelerator gets 60-65% of the 520 Meuros budget as in-kind contributions. I will in my talk give a brief overview of the science to be done at ESS, the project structure and status and some more details on the progress of the accelerator.
