Joint ANSTO-HZB Workshop

Perspectives for energy and materials science research with large scale facilities

March 7th 2017, 9.00 am - 5.00 pm

BESSY II Lecture Hall at Wilhelm-Conrad-Röntgen Campus

In October 2016 the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) signed an umbrella Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to merge former independent efforts, provide principles for cooperation and establish scientific collaborations and staff exchange in the field of energy materials research with – but not only – advanced analytics and large scale facilities.

This workshop aims at exchanging information and perspectives of current research activities at ANSTO and HZB for further concretization of joint scientific projects of mutual benefit.

The workshop is open to the public upon registration (deadline 01.03.2017).
