New analytical tools for engineering materials science

Europe has the world´s best portfolio of Advanced Research Infrastructures (ARIs), serving a wide and dynamic community of tens of thousands of scientists every year. These large-scale and unique facilities enable remarkable insights into materials of all types. The research infrastructures are increasingly becoming a routine tool exploited for industrial R&D.

SYNERGI 2018 will bring industrial researchers and European ARIs face to face on an unprecedented scale in order to discuss R&D matters and how they could eventually be addressed using the special techniques provided at ARIs. Depending on case presented, there is a possibility to get free access to some of Europe’s neutron- and synchrotron radiation sources.

The German Engineering Materials Science Centre (GEMS) from the Helmholtz-Zentntrum Geesthacht is one of the organising partners of SYNERGI 2018.

Thematically, the forum will cover engineering materials science - with subtopics including automotive, aerospace, metallurgy, additive manufacturing, energy and microelectronics.

Registration for the business-research matching requires creation of a profile indicating the topics to discuss. The team of ARI scientists and industrial liaison officers will contact attendees to set up meetings. Meetings can also be requested with specific participants.
