SCANDEM 2019 – from Atoms to Complex Systems

SCANDEM is designed to bring experts, researchers, technicians and exhibitors together from different imaging modalities to stimulate knowledge exchange and the formation of new collaborations. SCANDEM is hosted by the NMI node CCI in Gothenburg in june 2019.

National Microscopy Infrastructure

NMI is a Swedish infrastructure for the use and support of advanced microscopy in life science. NMI is supported from the Swedish Research Council and cofinanced from the participating Universities, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, Umeå University and University of Gothenburg.


The mission of NMI is to provide faster access to innovative technology and competence in microscopy for the life science research community. NMI will also coordinate national and international knowledge exchange in microscopy.
