This industry event is aimed at helping companies understand how large physics research infrastructures could support them in their development of new products for the energy sector.
For industrial R&D specialist characterisation and imaging tools become useful when standard means fail and a trial and error approach is too expensive.
Special probes such as synchrotrons, neutron sources and high energy laser sources make processes visible that are otherwise impossible to observe. This enables for example the characterisation of materials, imaging components and even some systems during operation to gain understanding on how exactly they function. These tools and probes provide greater insight that could lead to better or even game-changing products.
The event is aimed at industry in the energy sector and will communicate how the different tools and probes may be helpful to industrial R&D. It is also aimed at academics interested in the challenges faced by industry and who want to work with them to find solutions. It is part of the EU funded project Accelerate, supporting the long-term sustainability of large-scale research infrastructures (RIs).
During the event we will introduce companies to a breadth of technologies available to them, provide examples on how they have been used and what has been achieved. We will also inform you on how you can access those facilities and what funding support, local, national and EU, might be available to you.
Topics will include energy storage, generation, transmission and conversion.
