SWEbeams now up and running!
Autumn saw the launch of the national SWEbeams project. The purpose of the initiative is to gather stakeholders in ESS, MAX IV and the nearby research and innovation arena, and to compile their strategies, plans, needs and conditions for utilising the facilities.
The project will result in:
- A joint, long-term national vision and strategy with regard to ESS/MAX IV/SVS.
- A concrete basis for the next political proposition on research to support this strategy.
- Forms/structures/organisation of a national collaboration platform that can “own” the strategy.
On 24 November, the project held its first major workshop in Stockholm, and during the spring plans will be made for follow-up meetings and activities in Umeå, Gothenburg and Skåne.
These will take place between September 2017 and July 2018, in close cooperation with stakeholders, ESS and MAX IV and led by Chalmers. Region Skåne and Science Village Scandinavia will contribute to the implementation of the project.
