Lund Innovation District & the benefits of MAXIV & ESS

The vision for the research facilities, ESS and MAX IV, is to create an international world-leading centre within materials science and life sciences. MAX IV became operational in 2016, and ESS plans to start delivering research in 2025. The facilities will provide Sweden with unique conditions for conducting excellent research and create new opportunities for collaboration between academia, industry and the public sector in order to achieve solutions for sustainable societal development.
