Constructive visit to MAX IV

A team from Big Science Sweden (BiSS) recently visited the MAX IV research facility in Lund. Discussion topics included how BiSS can work more closely with the Technical Division in the future.

From BiSS, Sven-Christian Ebenhag, Anna Bille, Max Collins, and Catarina Sahlberg; from MAX IV, Magnus Larsson.

The visit was part of the regular and close contact between BiSS and MAX IV. In addition to the valuable discussions on collaboration, the BiSS team was also given a guided tour of the facility – an impressive Swedish national synchrotron laboratory, hosted by Lund University, that welcomes around 1000 users every year.

Opportunities for Swedish companies?

Catarina Sahlberg, Director Big Science Sweden, took part in the discussions and saw potential for Swedish companies.

“It was a rewarding visit, and interesting to hear about how they will be working in the Technical Division. Several of the planned projects for development and upgrades could be of interest to Swedish companies.”
