Very good news for TEM infrastructure in Sweden with the announcement that the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research has appointed Per Persson as a Research Infrastructure Fellow (RIF). He will run an “atomic resolution cluster” from Linköping and Lund with Crispin Hetherington as the dedicated staff member in Lund. The project is funded from January 2016 for 5 years and further details will soon follow about how to access these advanced TEM facilities on an ARC website.
The heads of the ARTEMI nodes met on 27 May 2014 in Linköping as part of the planning for the network’s future. From left to right in the photograph are Per Persson (Linköping), Crispin Hetherington (Lund), Gunnar Svensson (Stockholm), Reine Wallenberg (Lund) and Klaus Leifer (Uppsala). Eva Olsson from Chalmers could not attend.
Scandem 2014 took place from 11 to 13 June in Linköping. We took the opportunity to promote ARTEMI and talk to potential users about possible microscopy work at the ARTEMI sites.
Crispin returned to work in Lund on 18 March 2013 following 6 months of paternity leave
Scandem 2013 took place from 12 to 14 June in Copenhagen and ARTEMI-related staff took the chance to hold a few informal meetings about the network.
