InfraLife “exchange dialogues” to promote collaboration and development

The InfraLife “exchange dialogue” format is informal, short, online meetings where infrastructure representatives from MAX IV, SciLifeLab and ESS can get up to date with the latest possibilities at the respective sites and discuss future collaborations and synergies to push development of research infrastructure.

InfraLife exchange dialogues emerged from an interest to share knowledge between the infrastructures in different areas. The idea with exchange dialogues is to share knowledge and to inspire new collaborations between the infrastructures. This can initiate joint applications for funding, possibilities to refer clients to each other, joint stakeholder identification and larger outreach events to communicate a joint offer to researchers in academia, industry or healthcare.  

InfraLife aim to continue to use this exchange dialogue model on several topics joining the three large infrastructures that are partners in the project.

Do you want to take part in the up coming exchange dialogue or have a suggestion for future sessions?


Exchange dialogue: Imaging

During the spring of 2023 InfraLife plan to arrange exchange dialogues on Imaging. Several beam lines on MAX IV can perform imaging, using neutrons for imaging give great opportunities and the Advanced Light Microscopy , Advanced FISH Technologies and Cryo EM available at SciLifeLab are state of the art technologies.

More info on dates and times will be available within short.


The first InfraLife exchange dialogue took place during the spring of 2022, and had the theme “Fragment screening”. This dialogue gathered different stakeholders from institutions such as Uppsala University, Umeå University, SciLifeLab and MAX IV. For more information about the different parts of the dialogue, see below.

On April 29th, 2022 at 10.00-11.00 the exchange dialogue included presentations from:

Jens Carlsson, Uppsala University: In silico fragment screening and optimization in ultra-large chemical space
