The enabling forces behind the PRISMAS program are nine Swedish universities, industrial partners, and the large-scale research infrastructure MAX IV – all dedicated to the future of synchrotron research for solving societal challenges.

At the beginning of the project, a total of 43 partners from academia, institutes, and industry are committed to the PRISMAS program implementation, training, and supervision of students.

The universities (Implementing Partners) and Associated Partners (including market-leading industrial partners) host the PRISMAS students during their fellowship. These stays are tailored to the PhD project of each PRISMAS fellow in terms of technical training, intersectoral experiences at different institutions (research centers, industrial companies, etc.), and international networking. This gives the students significant interdisciplinary perspectives that will benefit their future careers.

The universities’ co-funding of the PRISMAS programme proves their dedication to synchrotron research as a means for solving tomorrow’s global challenges and securing that Sweden takes the lead in educating the next generation of synchrotron experts.
