Science Village will participate in EU-funded development projects
Three project applications – in which Science Village is a co-proposer – have been granted EU funding. The three projects are all important to ensure that the developments around ESS and MAX IV will move forward.
1. ESS and MAX IV Cross Border Science and Society
This project is aimed at maximising the impact of the ESS and MAX IV research facilities. The main focus is on strengthening the skills of young researchers, but there are also sub-projects in lowering barriers, and promoting measures to ensure that researchers thrive and feel welcome, as well as how companies can become suppliers of products and services to the two large facilities.
The project is a collaboration between 27 players, including eight universities, in the Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak region. The total project budget is approximately 200 MSEK and runs for three years.

2. Materials Business Centre
This project works towards creating a platform for interaction between established industries, small- and medium-sized enterprises, entrepreneurs, academia and other institutions. The ambition is that the contacts that are facilitated between the participants will lead to long-term collaborations, developments and business initiatives.
The project is a regional cooperation between Region Skåne, Lund University, Skåne Innovation, Invest in Skåne and Science Village Scandinavia AB. The total project budget is about 12 MSEK and it will also run for three years.
3. Development laboratories around the ESS and MAX IV
The project enables a short feasibility study to be carried out aimed at identifying which scientific infrastructures are needed around the ESS and MAX IV and how those needs could be financed.
The project is a collaboration between Lund University, Region Skåne, ESS, MAX IV and Science Village Scandinavia AB. The total project budget is 0.8 MSEK and it will run for nine months.
