Vacuum technology seminar provides valuable insights

Our recent online Big Science Technical Seminar on vacuum technology attracted a lot of interest, and participants heard the latest news on upcoming vacuum requirements at ESS and FAIR. The seminar also included a basic introduction to vacuum technology and its applications.

Important field for research facilities

Mike Olsson from Big Science Sweden moderated the seminar, and emphasised the importance of vacuum technology for the research facilities. This was also made clear in the presentations by the representatives from FAIR and ESS.

Fredrik Arrhén, Senior Scientist at RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden, gave us some insights into the institute’s research focus on vacuum technology, and also announced plans for a training session, “Vacuum training for technicians,” to be held later this year. Keep an eye open for that!

“Participating in our seminars is a good way for the Big Science research organisations to come into contact with interested and relevant companies, and for Swedish companies to learn more about the research facilities’ future needs, plans, and requirements,” says Mike Olsson.

Many of our events offer an ideal opportunity to make valuable contacts, both with research facilities and other companies working in related fields to your own. Make it a habit to check our Calendar regularly!
