The FAIR organisation is delighted that Catarina is now taking over the position of Chair. “Catarina Sahlberg has been dedicated to FAIR for over 10 years and enjoys the trust of our stakeholders. Her experience and dedication will drive FAIR forward. We are grateful for her commitment and look forward to a successful future!”

Critical construction phase

FAIR will be one of the largest research projects worldwide, and building up the facility will naturally bring many challenges.

“I am proud to be elected the first non-German chair of the FAIR Council. The FAIR project is currently in a critical construction phase, and I hope to be able to contribute to taking the project towards completion,' says Catarina.

Catarina’s experience and contact network is invaluable for the Big Science Sweden organisation, where expertise and good relationships with the international research organisations are crucial.

Congratulations on this appointment, Catarina!
