Dear Big Science Sweden members and friends 
This autumn has been filled with rewarding meetings, not least during BSBF in Granada. Our popular Technical Seminars also give participants the opportunity to make important new contacts and acquire new knowledge. We invite key people from the research organisations to give us the latest information about technological advances and upcoming needs.

At our Technical Seminar on Remote Handling in October, ITER, ESS and CERN gave us fascinating insights into advanced applications of new remote handling technology. Our next Technical Seminar, on 6 December, concerns advanced manufacturing, and representatives from ESS and CERN will be talking about sub-contractor opportunities. Don’t miss this, and don’t forget to register!

Best wishes
Catarina Sahlberg, Programme Director

“Events like BSBF make the Big Science world feel more like a community," said F4E's Leonardo Biagioni in the concluding plenary session. We agree! Seminars, 1-to-1 meetings, meetings over coffee… so many points of contact, so many opportunities to network.
