Title: Engaging local industry in the development of basic research infrastructure and instrumentation – The case of HIE-ISOLDE and ESS Scandinavia

Abstract

Two world-class research facilities, the European Spallation Source, ESS, and the light-source facility MAX-IV, are being built in southern Sweden. They will primarily, when completed, be used for research in the fields of material sciences, life sciences, medicine and pharmacology. Their construction and the operation and maintenance of them for many years will create new business opportunities for companies in Europe in general and in Sweden, Denmark and Norway in particular in many different sectors. A project, CATE, Cluster for Accelerator Technology, was set up with the aim to strengthen the skills of companies in the Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak region in Scandinavia in the field of accelerator technology such that they will become competitive and be able to take advantage of the potential of these two research facilities. CATE was strategically important and has helped to create partnerships between companies and new business opportunities in the region.
