Successful research and technical development requires access to a strong research infrastructure, and there is currently unexploited potential in the use of advanced instruments for materials research in industrial development projects. Collaboration between industry and academia is the answer.

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.
