Dear Big Science Sweden members and friends,

Dear Big Science Sweden members and friends,
After a long, dark winter, we are finally moving towards brighter times.
Thanks to everyone who participated in our recent digital event, Pan-European Partnering in Big Science. Participants learned more about the future needs of research facilities and the advantages of building consortia when submitting bids.
This year, we will finally get the chance to meet again in person. The first event is the Nordic ITER Business Forum in Copenhagen on 29-30 March, and in October, BSBF22 will be held in Granada. Don't forget to register to take part in our Swedish Pavilion.

Best wishes 
Anna Hall, Programme Director
