Dear Big Science Sweden members and friends 
The year is coming to an end, and we can look back on a year of stimulating conferences, seminars, study visits, and other events. We were at last able to travel, and really enjoyed meeting people face-to-face again after two years of digital interaction.

We’re now looking ahead to 2023, when we will continue to develop our activities and support Swedish companies looking to gain a foothold in the Big Science market. Finding the right contacts and getting involved in interesting projects at an early stage are crucial – and this is where we come in.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
Catarina Sahlberg, Programme Director
