The Laboratoire Léon Brillouin (LLB) holds the French expertise in neutron science and related instrumentation. LLB is engaged in the upgrade of IN6 through a CRG contract of type A. This upgrade has been performed during the 2019 shutdown of ILL. this is the SHARP project ("Spectromètre Hybride Alpes Région Parisienne" ). LLB is now in charge of the new Sharp spectrometer that was in operation during the last reactor cycle of 2021. During the current long shutdown of the reactor, Sharp will be transfered at the end of the new H15 guide.
