Main symposium

The Infrastructures of the Future: Basic Science in Dynamic Regions

Date: 17-18 October I Time: Full day I Place: LUX, Lund
Symposium devoted to the future role of infrastructure in science. High hopes are often bound to research infrastructure from a number of perspectives. But how do we know that they will function as planned? Can there be any guarantees that investments in research infrastructures are well spent? This event will take place between 12:00-16:00 on 17 October 2017 and continue the day after, 18 October between 08:00-12:00.
