Creation of the European Network « Mediators connecting Industry to X-rays and Neutrons »

EARIV – European Analytical Research Infrastructure Village


On 22nd September 2020 the project reached a significant milestone: On the signing of a Letter of Intent the European network ‘Mediators connecting Industry to X-rays and Neutrons’ came officially into being. The network aims to support its members in several ways:

1. Speak with one voice towards facilities and political stakeholders in order to increase visibility and awareness of value creation by mediators
2. Reach new customers and collaborate on improved customer service by activating the complementary competences in the network
3. Advocate for easier non-academic access and use of facilities

Who can become a member? All entities providing commercial analytical services and interacting with synchrotrons or neutron facilities.

Among the founding members are the following institutions:

Anna Stenstam, CR Competence AB
Nikolaj Zangenberg, Grethe Vestergaard Jensen, Danish Technological Institute – DMRI
Fabia Gozzo, Excelsus Structural Solutions (Swiss) AG
Simon Jacques, FINDEN LTD
Barbara Fayard, NOVITOM
Tomas Lundqvist, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden
Derek Logan, SARomics Biostructures AB
Sophie Bouat, Science-SAVED (France)
Mårten Edwards, Robert Moberg, Uppsala Synchrotronix AB
Bernhard Hesse, XPLORAYTION GmbH

Very pleased to be hosting the « CAROTS » (www.carots.eu) network today at ESRF – The European Synchrotron and ILL – Institut Laue Langevin. The project is building a network of intermediaires, like NOVITOM, XPLORAYTION GmbH and SARomics Biostructures AB which help bridge between our amazing Large-Scale European Research Infrastructures and industry, supporting industrial R&D using the exceptional properties of these infrastructures.

SYNERGI 2019 – Lyon

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


S.A.V.E.D. was founded by Sophie BOUAT, Ph.D in Physics & Engineer in Material Physics.
