WP Cross Border Research

Expected results
- A strong network in the Life Science sector in the ÖKS-Hamburg area, with participants from academia, the business sector and research infrastructures, with increased expertise in using ESS, MAX IV, DESY and European XFEL technologies
- 36 (+5 from the University of Oslo) cross-border projects using FEL light, synchrotron light, neutrons and / or electrons with high innovation potential and with clear connection to issues important for business
- A base and pool of young Life Science researchers with high skills in the technologies at the research facilities
- 200 Life Science researchers and Life Science representatives in business with improved knowledge and increased interest in FEL light, synchrotron light, neutrons and / or electronics applications in Life Science
- Three summer schools for participants from all partner organisations
- Three or four workshops with 120 participants from ÖKS-Hamburg

HALOS Cross Border Research WP aims to connect industry and academic Life Science researchers to each other and to the ÖKS and Hamburg synchrotron- and FEL-light, neutron and electron microscopy facilities. Importantly, HALOS will provide a platform for access to the needed expertise for the entire pipeline of planning, execution and analysis stages of

research projects. HALOS will make a significant difference by bridging industry and facilities and providing direct contacts to academic experts, sharing knowledge and building cross-border and cross-sector networks. The Medicon Valley Alliance (MVA), the Öresund Life Science cluster organisation with over 250 member organisations from BioTech, MedTech and pharmaceutical companies will be a key player in this WP using its well established routes for reaching industry and company representatives at different levels with information and invitations to joint workshops and meetings to maximise the impact of HALOS for regional industry. By using the communication channels of MVA HALOS will gain direct access to its +250 members from the Life Science sector, who together employ approximately 140k people, and include universities, hospitals, human Life Science business, regional governments and service providers. MVA will also promote HALOS scientific seminars, workshops and summer schools through their website, newsletters and digital platforms. HALOS will, together with other mediator initiatives in the region, be an important channel for industry to access infrastructures for electrons, synchrotron- and FEL-light and neutrons. Specifically, HALOS will promote the mutual access of industry to researchers in Life Science at universities and facilities.
