AIMday Big Science Technology. Choose the topic of you interest

Wednesday 27 November the focus will turn to future needs and long-term partnerships. The day will be structured according to the internationally recognised workshop approach called AIMday, developed by Uppsala University.
The aim of the workshops is to help enable long-term collaborations, by sharing knowledge, presenting expertise, and gaining first-hand information about the needs of research facilities and their current andfuture challenges. The Big Science research facilities will be formulating the questions, and the discussion panels will be made up of scientists from around Sweden, together with representatives from companies that deliver to Big Science.
