All in one day!

Tutorials, B2B, networking

SYNERGI is an event that gives you an insight into neutron and synchrotron characterisation techniques for R&D, introducing techniques that allow materials and device investigation far beyond conventional laboratory capabilities.
• Chemical engineering and catalysis
• Food, agriculture and consumer products
• Biochemistry and pharmaceutical development
• Petrochemicals & gas
• Environmental chemistry

2

Learn how neutron and synchrotron facilities are already working with a wide range of businesses from different industrial sectors.

3

Book a meeting with our experts to discuss about your challenges and needs during the R2B session.

4

Take the opportunity to perform free feasibility
tests via one of our programmes.

SINE2020 project arrange feasibility studies to be performed free of charge for indutsrial companies at neutron centres in Europe.

CALIPSOplus project is providing SMEs access to light source infrastructures through a central entry point on the wayforlight portal.

R2B (and B2B) meetings and tutorials in parallel
Flash Tutorials (30 min each, serial)

A) Improvement in formulation: using X-rays and neutron to investigate the microstructure with varying external conditions
Isabelle Grillo, scientist at Institut Laue-Langevin and instrument responsible, France

B) Using neutron and X-ray diffraction to understand ligand binding to protein targets
Zoë Fisher, Group Leader for Deuteration and Macromolecular Crystallisation at the European Spallation Source ESS, Sweden

C) Unique characterisation techniques for advanced materials: catalyst, magnetic-nanoparticle, thin films, etc. We will explain how neutron and synchrotron techniques allow the tracking of microstructure, phases, chemistry of a material while it is being manufactured or exploited.
Novitom, speaker TBC


D) Light, X-rays and neutrons: the characterisation cocktail for soft matter systems
Marc Obiols-Rabasa, senior scientist at CR-Competence AB, Sweden

E) Multiple aspects of X-rays imaging: µ-tomo, fluorescence and diffraction
Elodie Boller / Julie Villanova, scientists at ESRF, France

F) Nanoparticles: shedding light on how they behave and how they interact with their environment
Xploraytion, speaker TBC

G) Neutrons: which peculiarities and complementarities with x-rays and lab-based techniques?
ILL, speaker TBC
