Big Science Sweden Conference 2020

Great atmosphere, fast tempo, and a feeling of almost physical presence when Big Science Sweden Conference 2020 went digital.

Thank you to all 245 delegates, from 14 countries, who joined us in building the Big Science ecosystem. This year’s conference proved to be an intensive day, with reports from eight research facilities, discussions in nine breakout sessions in various areas of technology, and no fewer than 34 speakers and 179 1-to-1 meetings. During the breaks, participants looked round the virtual exhibition, including video pitches from 18 member companies showing their offers to the research facilities.
