About Big Science Sweden

Big Science Sweden serves as a link between Swedish industry and the Big Science research facilities in which Sweden is a member. In practical terms, we help Swedish companies supply equipment, materials, and services to Big Science research facilities around the world.

Part of our work involves identifying suitable companies and showing them opportunities for business and technological development in the Big Science field. By doing so, we are contributing to the build-up of knowledge, skills, and expertise that drive technological development, skills enhancement, internationalisation, and growth in Swedish companies. Our work also promotes innovation, knowledge transfer, and a broader application of research findings in society.

Who we are:

  • Mandated by the Swedish Government
  • Funded by Vinnova (Sweden’s Innovation Agency), The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) and The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket).
  • Sweden’s official Industry Liaison Organisation, serving European Big Science research facilities in which Sweden is a member
  • Big Science Sweden’s Tech Transfer Office, e.g. in partnership with the CERN Knowledge Transfer Group
