Big Science Sweden is funded by Sweden’s largest and most important organisations for supporting and funding Swedish research and high-tech research and growth: Vinnova (Sweden’s Innovation Agency), The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) and The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket).
Big Science Sweden is led by a consortium comprising the Association of Swedish Engineering Industries (Teknikföretagen), the industrial development centre (Industrikluster IUC Syd), Chalmers University of Technology, Lund University, Luleå University of Technology, Uppsala University, RISE, and Region Skåne.
The management consortium operates through a Steering Committee, supported by regional Advisory Boards.
