Till programmet

During Almedalen Week Big Science Sweden is arranging a panel debate on the benefits generated by large international research facilities. We hope you can join us.

There is great potential for Sweden to win important business contracts and develop new knowledge, expertise and skills by contributing to technological development in large-scale international research facilities.

In our panel debate, we will be discussing how Sweden will benefit when this potential is realised, and what industry and academia need to improve their chances of winning important orders for Sweden.

Almedalen Week is an annual political, social and business forum held in Visby (Gotland). The event attracts nearly 50,000 visitors, who attend debates, speeches, seminars, and other events.

Join us at Uppsala University (Campus Gotland) in Visby. Make a note in your diary.

Please note that the discussion will be held in Swedish. 

Det finns stor potential för Sverige att ta hem viktiga affärer, ny kunskap och kompetens genom att bidra till teknisk utveckling av storskaliga internationella forskningsanläggningar. Hur kan vi göra detta på bästa sätt och växa som kunskaps- och innovationsland?
