Access and support
An important part of Treesearch is to make advanced research infrastructure available to academia and industry in order to powerfully expand the relevant knowledge base and thereby contribute to further increasing Sweden’s competitiveness.
At each academic node plus RISE, there are a research infrastructures that are made available to Treesearch associated researchers, postdocs and PhD students.
Treesearch provides access and support to advanced research infrastructure
Treesearch’s nodes make available various advanced infrastructures for high-resolution characterization and processing.

How it works
The access to the research infrastructure in Treesearch is facilitated by coordinators at each node. Researchers who wish to use an infrastructure submit a brief application via the form linked to from this page. An approved application means that you get access to infrastructure and implementation support.
The person who uses the infrastructure is responsible for any costs for the direct use of an infrastructure according to the tariff that applies at the respective node (so-called machine time).
The implementation support consists of time with one or more researchers with relevant specialist competence in order to support the experimental work and analysis of measurement data to achieve the highest possible quality of the work. The implementation support can cover a maximum of 40 hours / project.
After the infrastructure project has been completed, a brief report is provided on this page.
ForMAX - a unique beamline for materials from the forest at MAX IV. The investment cost for ForMAX is a donation of SEK 100 million from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and Treesearch is responsible for the operating costs for the first ten years.
National infrastructures of interest
Umeå Core Facility for Electron Microscopy (UCEM)
Umeå Core Facility for Electron Microscopy (UCEM) is a joint resource for research and higher education in electron microscopy techniques. Electron microscopy is used for structural and chemical characterization of materials at micro and nano-meter length scales. Medical and biological samples are prepared, imaged and analyzed in 3D. Also, structure biology projects are addressed by cryo electron microscopy.
