8 - 9 March 2018

NEMO Science Museum, Amsterdam

You cannot solve your problem with conventional lab equipment?

Dear industrial researchers,

from 8 to 9 March 2018, SYNERGI 2018 will bring together industrial researchers and scientists from large-scale facilities at the NEMO Science Museum in Amsterdam.
These unique facilities offer a deep insight into materials of all types.

Wishing you plenty scientific highlights for 2018!

Key note speakers:

The event will be opened by three industrial speakers who will share their experience in utilising synchrotron and neutron research facilities for their R&D.

Daigo Setoyama, Toyota Central R&D labs Inc., JP
Quantum beams accelerate R&D of automotive industry

Hjalmar Staf, SANDVIK AB, SE
Improving cutting tools with insights from neutron tomography

Axel Müller, OHB System AG, DE
Through thickness non-destructive residual stress-mapping on Friction Stir Welds for the space industry


The goal of SYNERGI2018 is to bring together industrial researchers and facility scientists to discuss present R&D problems. This is an unique opportunity to figure out how these issues could possibly be solved using the special techniques provided by large scale facilities (ARIs).

Please register for the matching session and create your profile including the topics you would like to address or expertise you are looking for. Our team of scientists and industrial liaison officers will contact you for meetings.

The R2B-Matchmaking is organised by Enterprise Europe Network
