Merry Christmas to you all!

2021 is soon at its end, and we look forward with excitement and optimism to 2022. This has been the second year of the pandemic – hopefully the last – and all our events have been held online. Thank you to all of you who have participated in and contributed to our discussions, Technical Workshops, Big Science Mornings, Business Corners, AIMdays...

We continue to promote collaborations, both nationally and internationally, because “when smart people meet, things happen.” More and more member companies are winning orders from Big Science facilities, either individually or through consortia. We know all the hard work that lies behind preparing tenders. Thank you so much for your contribution to strengthening Sweden as an international force in the Big Science community.

Even though our digital platforms have been successful, we are so looking forward to seeing you all again in person, hopefully in 2022.
We wish you all a peaceful Christmas with friends and family. Stay healthy.
