Swedish companies are increasingly winning the confidence of Big Science research organisations in Europe. Naturally, specialist expertise is vital in winning contracts, but sometimes patience can be a virtue in the more complicated and protracted procurements.
A consortium comprising RISE Research Institutes of Sweden and Lund University, with AQ Elautomatik as subcontractor, recently won an attractive order from ITER in power electronics. This is a prime example of partners working successfully in a consortium to submit a bid that required both knowledge, expertise... and patience.
It is very encouraging that we are making an impact at ITER, establishing important contacts and showcasing the high levels of expertise and reliability in our member companies. By doing so, we are opening doors for Swedish industry.

Best wishes
Håkan Nilsson, Business Development & Project Management
