Following the success of the scintillators brokering meeting held by PPARC (The Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council) in 2002 Qi3 is pleased to announce that a full scale workshop is to be held on Scintillators and Active Materials at the Royal Society in London on the 17th November 2004.
Registration for this workshop is free at: www.qi3.co.uk/scintillators
Ken Green of Qi3 said, “This workshop will follow up the brokering meeting we held in 2002 which resulted in a number of successful industry-academia collaborative projects. Feedback from the 2002 meeting was very positive and there have been several requests for a follow up meeting from both industry and academia.”
Qi3 is organising this workshop as Industry Coordinator for the Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (PPARC), as part of ongoing work to increase the level of collaborations between the physics community and UK industry and academia.
Qi3 has considerable experience in technology transfer between public and private sectors, as well as in spinout creation, licensing, and sales and marketing for high-tech businesses. The company has built a reputation for providing effective hands-on support to public sector organisations, high-tech start-ups, spinouts, and large corporations.
The workshop will provide a good opportunity for industrialists and academics engaged in scintillator related work to network, compare needs and capabilities, and explore possibilities for collaboration. Directors, senior sales, marketing and technical managers from companies with interests in defence, medical imaging, radiation detection, detectors, security, aerospace, and non destructive testing should find it very worthwhile.
The workshop will cover current and future scintillator requirements from both an industry and academic perspective, and will also look at technical and application advancements that have been made as a result of industry-academic partnerships.
