German conference for research with synchrotron radiation, neutrons and ion beams at large facilities
Two members of the MIXN network were presenting their impact as Scientific Service Companies (SSCs) in providing access to elemental insights for industrial research and development activities.
At the SNI Tagung in Berlin in September 2022, Sophie Bouat (from Science SAVED) and Simon Jacques (from FINDEN) were both speakers in the “Microsymposium: Industry, Innovation & Transfer” of this scientific conference for research with synchrotron radiation, neutrons and ion beams at large facilities.
They were highlighting in their talks “What do large-facilities bring to industry?” and “Lubricating Industrial Science”, how SSCs can foster technology transfer and support large companies in solving challenging questions with complex high-tech material properties.
Both SSC companies were applying unique material characterization methods using neutrons or synchrotron x-rays, that are available only at large-scale research infrastructures.
