Big Science Sweden connects industry with international research organisations
International Big Science research facilities, located all over the world, are conducting groundbreaking research, and stimulating innovation and technical development. Big Science Sweden serves as a bridge between Swedish industry, academia, and these large-scale research facilities.
Our Industrial Liaison Officers (ILOs) work together with the rest of the Big Science Sweden team to strengthen Sweden as an innovative and leading Big Science nation, by helping to establish Swedish innovation on a global market.
Our mission is to support Sweden’s engagement in Big Science. We focus on high-tech contributions that drive innovation, and we promote collaboration and generate business opportunities for Sweden.
Doing business with Big Science
Our technical specialists review procurements from the research facilities, working actively and strategically in considering which member companies could be interested in a specific procurement. We then alert the relevant companies, and guide them through the tender procedure and technical specifications.
We publish current and upcoming procurements.
The Swedish Guide is a catalogue of up-to-date information about Swedish high-tech companies and universities, and what they can offer the demanding Big Science market.
Academic contributions to Big Science
Scientific questions often demand the latest technology to extend the boundaries of knowledge. Big Science is the domain where scientists and engineers work together, conducting cutting-edge research and building equipment for the research facilities.
Big Science Sweden activities include:
- Information spreading
- Networking and relationship building
- Challenge-driven technical seminars
- Active and proactive work with upcoming procurements
- Actively looking for opportunities for Swedish industry, institutes and universities
