    09:00 -16:00
    MAX IV, Sweden
    MAX IV, Fotongatan 2, Lund, Sweden
    • The focus of the workshops will be on applications and technologies, relevant for the MedTech industry, that exist or will be available at the large research infrastructures MAX IV and ESS (European Spallation Source) at the University of Lund in Skåne in southern Sweden. The aim is to increase the accessibility and use of these facilities both nationally and internationally by the MedTech industry.The workshop is to create a network that brings together industries with common interests, which in the long run can generate new platforms and projects.The aim to increase the MedTech industry’s awareness and knowledge of relevant instruments that are being built at MAX IV and ESS. The workshop also seek to enable participation in the building of test environments at these research facilities, specially designed for the MedTech industry, testing everything from implants to devices and diagnostics.Programme

      09:00-11:30 Introduction and presentations of technologies and applications
      11:30-12:30 Lunch
      12:30-15:00 Discussion forum with experts in scattering, spectroscopy and imaging
      15:00-16:00 Optional: Visit the MAX IV facilities

    We are happy to invite all LINX members to a focus workshop within Colloid materials.

    This events is of a more technical level within the subject. Participants are to come get inspired and help others with their knowledge and experience in a confidential forum.

    Industry participants in this work package (WP): Biomodics, Novo Nordisk, ROCKWOOL and Tetra Pak.

    University participants in this WP: University of Copenhagen.
    Other participants: Aarhus University, Technical University of Denmark, LINX and other LINX members.

    Novo Nordisk will host the event.

    Tentativ agenda: TBA

    How can MAX IV and ESS boost Nordic food science and technology?

    Fully understanding the complexity of food and food processes requires a new toolbox. Sweden has made large investments in research infrastructures that offer unique opportunities for the food industry and food science and technology. These tools can help tackle the challenges for future development of food science relating to:

    • How does processing influence food quality and structure and how can processing be optimized.
    • How does the micro and macro structure of food products and production influence the sensory perception, e.g. taste.
    • How can we enhance the health benefits of food products through optimized composition and processing.
    • How can the environmental impact of food and its production be reduced.
    • How can we improve food packaging to maximize food security and longevity whilst also minimizing environmental impacts.

    Now is the time to create the user community in the food sector that can shape the facilities in terms of access, sample environments and instruments. Together it will be discussed how these unique tools can contribute to the ongoing and future research in food science and technology and solving industrial and societal challenges in the food area.

    Join for a lunch to lunch workshop on 26th and 27th of March 2019 in the heart of Lund at Kulturen. A tour and presentation of MAX IV and ESS will be organized on the 26th of March followed by a dinner at Flädie Mat & Vingård where scientific discussions will be intertwined with a tour of the Vineyard. The program will consist of inspiring invited talks, contributed short talks and group discussions. It is an aim to publish the results of the discussions in a report.

    Researchers and product developers from industry, academic researchers, funding agencies, policy makers and anybody who has an interest in food of the future are welcome. Short contributing talks are welcome.

    LINXS is co-organising the workshop together with MAX IV and RISE.

    All day
    "Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft" in Herrsching/Ammersee, Germany
    "Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft" in Herrsching/Ammersee, Rieder Str. 70, 82211 Herrsching am Ammersee, Germany

    The MATRAC 2 School will provide a systematic overview of the application of neutrons and synchrotron radiation to the structural analysis of engineering materials and will focus on neutron scattering and imaging experiments. Students and young scientists from research and industry from all of Europe interested in this field are welcome to participate.

    This school starts again with the fundamentals of synchrotron radiation and neutron scattering. In contrast to MATRAC 1, the focus is subsequently shifted towards neutron techniques and their application on specific problems in materials science. Different classes of modern materials are presented and it will be shown how neutron scattering, on the one hand, and synchrotron radiation, on the other hand, can be used to explore the microscopic mechanisms that are responsible for their properties. While fundamental aspects are dominating, application related phenomena will be covered as well.
