Meeting ID: 984 7007 8205
Big Science Sweden and the ÅMA Ångström Materials Academy at Uppsala University will be holding a seminar on research infrastructure for industrial development. Representatives from selected research infrastructures and industrial companies are invited to share information and discuss the instruments that are available in universities, the type of materials challenges each instrument is appropriate for, and how to gain access to each instrument.
Round table discussions with the speakers will be held between 16:30 and 17:00. You will be able to choose the discussion you wish to join.
