09. April 2018 - 10. April 2018 Challenges in additive manufacturing industrial qualification: key solutions at large scale infrastructures

Grenoble, France


From process qualification until component certification, additive manufacturing presents big challenges as a new field of material processing with multiple new parameters. Therefore, new insights concerning characterization are envisaged for process and component standards and certification, as well as for experimental benchmark input for modellings.

European large installations ILL and ESRF offer a common frame for additive manufacturing industrial investigations, where unique static (scanning) and dynamic (in-situ) studies on stresses and imaging, from the nanometre until several centimetres range, are possible. To foster industrial escalation of additive manufacturing, we aim at bringing together industry and applied sciences to address key manufacturing issues regarding final quality assessment of products.

To have a look at the Program follow this link.

Why neutrons?

  • For non-destructive and bulk characterization: neutrons can penetrate several cm into matter.
  • For new information: neutrons interact in a different way with matter, hence giving another contrast, i.e. for hydrogen!
  • For sample environment and in-situ studies

Why Synchrotron?

  • High energy X-rays, allowing higher penetration depth for real 3D imaging of high density samples.
  • High intensity X-rays for non-destructive probing of material structure and devices with high spatial resolution from millimetres to nanometres.
  • High intensity X-rays for real time measurements with less than a microsecond time resolution and high-throughput analysis under real manufacturing and operating conditions.

26. February 2018 - 28. February 2018 Big Science Business Forum 2018

Copenhagen, Denmark


Big Science Business Forum 2018 will be the first one-stop-shop for European companies and other stakeholders to learn about Europe’s Big Science organisations’ future investments and procurements worth billions of euros. The forum will offer your business the chance to:

  • Learn about business opportunities in the coming years, within a wide range of business areas.
  • Meet representatives from Europe’s Big Science organisations and their key suppliers.
  • Network and establish long lasting partnerships via business-to-business meetings (B2B), business-to-customer meetings (B2C) and in the open exhibition area.
  • Get insight into procurement rules, IPR, technology transfer and how businesses can interplay with the Big Science market.

  • A1 Procurement, IPR and standards
  • A2 Remote handling systems
  • A3 Cryogenic technology
  • A4 Affiliated Big Science organisations I (TBC)
  • B1 Technology transfer
  • B2 Superconductivity and superconducting magnets
  • B3 Safety systems, licensing and protection of hazardous installations, access control, fire and gas detection
  • B4 Affiliated Big Science organisations II (TBC)
  • C1 Electrical, electronics, electromechanical and RF systems
