Workshop: Positioning Formulation in future EU Framework Programmes

15 February 2018
 
The workshop aims at contributing to the development of a clear research and innovation agenda for the upcoming EU Framework Programme, but will also serve for positioning in national programmes and for networking with Swedish actors in the formulation area. The workshop will be part of a series of workshops organised in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Belgium and France and takes place within the context of AceForm4.0 (www.formulation-network.eu). This is a Coordination and Support Action funded by the EU Commission, set up to establish and support collaborations across different formulation industries and throughout the value chain.

Surface Analysis and Characterization - an Instrument Workshop

28 November 2018

A one-day workshop on surface analysis and characterization instruments. During the day you will have the opportunity to get acquainted with a range of different techniques. During stops in the laboratories of RISE you will get concise information from our specialists and see the instruments. At the end of the day you will have acquired a better understanding of how results from these techniques can be used by your company/organization in research, product and process development and troubleshooting. This workshop is intended for engineers, laboratory personnel and scientists working with research, development or quality control of products for which surface or interfacial properties have a major impact on product performance. 60% of the participants in 2017 rated this workshop as excellent; 40% as good.

” I got a  good overview of the different available techniques. The information was presented in a way that made it easy to assess if the technique could be useful in my work.”*
