MAX IV is connected to multiple user organizations and networks, here are some of them.

“The Association for Synchrotron Radiation Users at MAX IV” also known as “Föreningen för Användare av Synkrotronljuset vid MAX IV” – FASM.

FASM aims to have fast and efficient communication with the MAX IV management to improve the working conditions and the quality of the experiments at the new MAX IV facility. Members of FASM are therefore welcome to communicate current and future needs with the FASM board. At the same time FASM disseminates information to the members about the plans and prospects within the MAX IV organization.

FASMs mission is increasingly important as the user community is growing rapidly and more scientific disciplines are represented as users at MAX IV. In view of this FASM will introduce a number of proposals aimed to strengthen the activities within the MAX IV organization and be of further aid to new users.

The FASM board, elected 26 September 2018, consists of:

The Swedish Synchrotron Radiation Users Organization (SSUO) is the organization for all Swedish synchrotron users, at any facility. The primary aim of SSUO is to achieve improved conditions, including financial support, for Swedish researchers to use synchrotron radiation both nationally and internationally. To do this, SSUO interacts with national funding agencies, such as the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet).

SSUO is the Swedish member organization of ESUO

The European synchrotron and FEL user organisation (ESUO) is aiming at coordinating the synchrotron and FEL radiation user activities within Europe in order to guarantee the realization and the access to the best beamlines in Europe.
