Dear Big Science Sweden members and friends
A big "thank you" to all of you who made such valuable contributions by sharing knowledge and taking part in rewarding discussions during the Swedish Big Science Forum in Lund. So encouraging to see all these inspiring meetings!

Now we can turn our attention to what lies ahead in a busy year. For example, we hope to see you again at the BSBF in Trieste in October, where we will be hosting a Swedish Pavilion.

And massive congratulations to Kompressorteknik in Norrköping, to Luleå University of Technology, and to our team member, Max Collins. Read about their successes, and don't miss all the information about upcoming events.
