***CERIC Science Picture Contest 2017***


The deadline to submit your photos to the CERIC Science Picture Contest 2017 has been extended! Submit your pictures and scientific images before the 15th of December!

CERIC-ERIC has launched an open call for photographic material, the CERIC Science Picture Contest, aiming at showing the research environment and its results at the partner facilities distributed in CERIC Member Countries (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Slovenia).

Participants shall submit up to 5 scientific images (microscopy imaging, structures, chemical mapping, etc.) and/or pictures showing the research environment.

The authors of the three best pictures selected will be rewarded Euro 400,00 after taxes each.

New analytical tools for engineering materials science

Dates: 8 – 9 March 2018
Location: NEMO Science Museum, Amsterdam

Europe has the world´s best portfolio of Advanced Research Infrastructures (ARIs), serving a wide and dynamic community of tens of thousands of scientists every year. These large-scale and unique facilities enable remarkable insights into materials of all types. The research infrastructures are increasingly becoming a routine tool exploited for industrial R&D.

https://www.hzg.de/ms/synergi2018/index.php.enSYNERGI 2018 will bring industrial researchers and European ARIs face to face on an unprecedented scale in order to discuss R&D matters and how they could eventually be addressed using the special techniques provided at ARIs. Depending on case presented, there is a possibility to get free access to some of Europe’s neutron- and synchrotron radiation sources.
