How can industry make use of the tools available at MAX IV and ESS?

Join this one day workshop and learn about how industry can create value by getting access to advanced research tools at large research facilities!

The day will contain presentations from companies that are taking advantage of the analytical techniques available at synchrotrons and neutron facilities, both directly and indirectly. They will share their stories on how these tools help create value for their business. The day will also include presentations from institutes, companies, academic centers and other organizations that help industry get access to, or make use of, analytic tools at the facilities. You will also get an introduction to what is going on at MAX IV and ESS and information on how to get access to the facilities. The day will be rounded off by a visit to MAX IV Laboratory.

The workshop is combining presentations from industry users with information from the facilities and surrounding organizations that can help industry get access. The workshop is aimed at R&D Managers, industrial specialists and project leaders at companies who want to learn how they can make use of and benefit from analytical tools at large research facilities. The workshop can also be an opportunity for policy makers that are interested in understanding how to connect industry with large research facilities.
