Project description

The Helmholtz-Lund International graduate School (HELIOS) on "Intelligent instrumentation for exploring matter at different time and length scales" connects major knowledge hubs in the Baltic Sea Region: Hamburg University, DESY, and Lund University. HELIOS started in early 2021 and includes scientists from Particle Physics, Molecular Physics, Nano(bio) Science, and Ultrafast Photon Science. The aim of HELIOS is to develop the instrumentation and data acquisition systems for the next generation of photon sources and particle accelerators, in collaboration with industrial partners that we will seek within Big Science Sweden. HELIOS also aims to connect with the Hanseatic League of Science (HALOS) project for life sciences, to enhance use of the unique research centers in the area (MAX IV, ESS, DESY and XFEL).
