Successful research and technical development requires access to advanced research infrastructure, but industrial companies currently lack knowledge about the instruments and facilities that are available through collaboration between academia and industry. There is unexploited potential in the use of advanced instruments in industrial development projects.

Industry must be encouraged to use research infrastructure more, and one way is to ensure that information about research infrastructure is made available. Industrial companies need clear information about the instruments available in universities, the type of materials challenges each instrument is appropriate for, and how to gain access to each instrument.

On 8 December, Big Science Sweden and the ÅMA Ångström Materials Academy 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 potential of different instruments, including how they can be used in technical development.
