In June, the working group Soil Sciences, is organising its first workshop. In this interview, biologists and working group members, Edith Hammer and Milda Pucetaite talk about what they hope to get out of the event, and the importance of studying soil with the help of new techniques.
A radical transformation of the food system is needed to provide a healthy, sustainable and affordable diet for all people. Research and development into how food can become more nutritious, taste better, and use less resources, have a key role to play.
In October, the Integrative Structural Biology theme will organise its second symposium. Jens Lagerstedt, core group leader, talks to us about what the focus of the symposium will be, and how it links to to wider research field.
The Quantim workshop in March brought together early researchers and specialists in imaging techniques. The goal was to examine data from five cases ranging from lungs, skin, liver disease and foams, build networks and develop collaborations.
The Crafoord Foundation is one of the major funders of LINXS, and made its launch as an Institute possible. We took the opportunity to ask the management at Crafoord what made them interested in LINXS to begin with during their recent visit to the Institute.
The conference Northern Lights on Food takes place 26-27th March. It will gather some of Sweden and Denmark’s biggest food companies for a discussion on how to improve the taste and texture of food, increase its health benefits and lower its climate impacts – all with the help of neutron and x-ray science. They are invited by MAX IV, LINXS and RISE.
