25. October 2017 - 26. October 2017 BalticTram
Location

Stokholm, Sweden

Description

Tighter collaboration between industry / SMEs and the research sector could exploit a hitherto untapped potential to unleash the full capability of the knowledge and innovation system in Europe. Global competitiveness of the Baltic Sea Region – as well as other regions across the globe – highly depends on the continuous development of new products and innovative services based on sophisticated research. Bearing in mind the outstanding innovation performance showcased by the Baltic Sea Region in the European Innovation Scoreboard 2017, Baltic TRAM partnership is committed to advance the on-going dialogue on science-business cooperation.

This conference takes place at the helm of the Swedish Presidency of the Council of the Baltic Sea States, thus shedding more light on the implementation of Swedish Presidency´s priorities – sustainability, continuity and adaptability.

The conference will highlight various activities, projects and framework conditions for a better support of access opportunities for Industry/SMEs to analytical research facilities. It will have a true added value for industry by presenting practical offers, how to collaborate with analytical facilities.

During the first day of the conference the discussion will revolve around the innovation policy issues. The second day of the conference will give an overview of existing or upcoming support offers of high importance to the industry / SMEs.

22. October 2017 GeCatS Infoday Synchrotron Radiation and Neutrons for Catalysis, Materials Research and Development
Location

Frankfurt, Germany

Description

Synchrotron radiation and neutrons play an important role for understanding catalytic reactions and controlling material properties. The GeCatS information day aims to give an overview of the latest research in these fields.
The workshop will bring together new and established users from academia, large scale facilities and industry.

How do catalysts, fuel cells, batteries or sensors work on an atomic mesoscopic and macroscopic scale? What kind of changes occur under reaction conditions with gas exposure, temperature, time or with start up or interruption of the reaction?

These questions are of high relevance for the knowledge-based development of catalysts and new materials and, in particular, inspire breakthrough innovations, equally in academic and industrial research.

Synchrotron radiation and neutrons play an important role for understanding catalytic reactions and controlling material properties. The GeCatS information day aims to give an overview of the latest research in these fields. It is intended to promote the exchange and provide a platform for new and strengthened collaborations at both academic and industrial levels. We will bring together new and established users from academia, large scale facilities and industry.

Synchrotron radiation and neutron sources offer completely new insight. It is not only possible to obtain atomic structural information on functional materials but also to generate an image from the molecular system to the reactor or a battery. Thanks to new beamlines at synchrotron radiation sources, higher brilliance and tremendously improved computer power, tomographic images and 3D-investigations can now be obtained over many orders of length scales. In addition, processes can be directly followed, for example, the preparation of materials as well as the life of a catalyst under reaction conditions, i.e. in gas, liquid or high pressure environment. Another very important aspect is the tracking of temporal changes: new research approaches allow the data acquisition in the ms area, “pump-probe” experiments and X-ray lasers face even much shorter temporal information down to the fs range.

Such facilities are also highly interesting for industrial research and have great future potential. Many methodological synergies between synchrotron and neutron measurement techniques are currently available and lab infrastructure already exists to some extent, or is presently put into position. With the construction of FLASH and XFEL as well as the upgrade of BESSY or PETRA III, completely new possibilities arise in Germany and with MAXIV, ESRF, ILL, ISIS upgrades and the ESS at European level. Now it is important to familiarize the fundamental sciences and applied disciplines equally with the new potential created in recent years and to tap them as best as possible. The techniques and new potentials will only be used optimally if the right infrastructure is established and scientific questions are addressed and tackled in the right way.

Gain an overview of the possibilities. Get involved in this discussion and shape the future.

29. May 2017 - 30. May 2017 Public Awareness of Research Infrastructures II
Location

Garching (near Munich), Germany

Description

Communicating the importance of science to society

Science is exciting, enlightening, complex, fundamental, precise, logical, and creative, all at the same time. However, for the public to get in touch with it and understand why it encompasses all these concepts, efforts need to be made to bridge science and society. With this aim, communication teams at research infrastructures work with a range of methods and channels. They make complex information more tangible and disseminate it as broadly as possible so that the public can understand and be engaged.

This conference aims to be a hands-on forum for communication officers and public relations staff to share their experiences and expertise. The aim is that participants return home with new ideas for their work, by learning how and with which means other research institutions are communicating the importance of science and of research infrastructures to society.

Deadline for abstract submission: February 10, 2017

15. May 2017 - 17. May 2017 Deuteration for Neutron Scattering – DEUNET Workshop
Location

Oxford Spires Hotel, Oxford, UK

Description

Deuteration underpins the ability of neutron scattering techniques to elucidate the structure and dynamics of complex multicomponent materials that are typical in soft condensed matter and life sciences. With a wide range of advanced neutron facilities and instruments either in place or under development across Europe, it is of crucial importance that a strong emphasis is also placed on preparing deuterated samples that will maximise the quality and impact of current and future research. This workshop, organized jointly by the STFC Deuteration facility and the DEUNET European chemical deuteration network, brings together the user community with existing and developing deuteration laboratories to present recent advances in soft matter and life sciences and to discuss the needs to development of new methods, materials and deuteration services to fully leverage the investments made in neutron instrumentation in Europe.

The workshop will consist of a series of talks by user groups presenting their science using deuteration and neutrons, as well as presentation of the current capabilities and work done at the participating deuteration laboratories.

The workshop will collect valuable input from the user community on current and future deuteration needs for the DEUNET collaboration funded by the SINE2020 project (www.sine2020.eu). Read more about the DEUNET at deuteration.net.

Registration is now open and limited to 60 participants. Abstracts for posters are welcome until the 2nd April 2017.

27. February 2017 - 03. March 2017 MATRAC 2 Winter School
Location

Utting/Ammersee and Garching/Munich, Germany

Description

MATRAC 2 Winter School ‘Application of Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Materials Science with special focus on Fundamental Aspects of Materials’

The Winter School will provide a systematic overview of the application of neutrons and synchrotron radiation to the structural analysis of materials. The school starts with the fundamentals of synchrotron radiation and neutron scattering. The focus is subsequently shifted towards neutron techniques and their application to specific problems in materials science. Different classes of modern functional materials are presented and it will be shown how neutron scattering, on the one hand, and synchrotron radiation, on the other hand, can be used to explore the microscopic mechanisms that are responsible for their properties. While fundamental aspects are dominating, application related phenomena will be covered as well.

After a two-day theoretical course in Utting/Ammersee the participants will spend two days at the FRM II in Garching (near Munich) doing practicals. The fifth day of the school offers further talks and a final discussion. All relevant experimental methods will be covered.
