Large-scale research infrastructures such as DESY and XFEL in Hamburg and Max LAB and ESS in Lund offer huge potential in testing state-of-the-art solutions. But how do we secure efficient and balanced access to these facilities? We will discuss what structures are needed for better research-industry cooperation, looking at how academia can support companies in their innovation processes.

Organised together with the project Baltic TRAM.
