Town Hall Meeting

5 April 2016

To get a better understanding of the future needs for investment in cutting-edge and underpinning equipment that will support world-leading physical science and engineering in the UK, EPSRC is working with the academic community to prepare a series of "equipment roadmaps".

Together with the Capital Equipment SAT, photoelectron spectroscopy has been identified as an area of focus for a roadmap. Dr David Payne (Imperial College London) is leading the development of this roadmap with a working group of experts.

The working group wants to collect views from the broader user community on the future developments and capital investments required to ensure the UK remains/becomes internationally-competitive in the broad fields of research underpinned by photoelectron spectroscopy and is currently conducting a survey.

The Town Hall Meeting will take place from 10.30 until 16.00 in Birmingham on 05 April 2016 and is an opportunity to help synthesise the survey responses and contribute to the development of the Capital Roadmap for Photoelectron Spectroscopy including contributing to:

  • What is the current UK photoelectron spectroscopy landscape? What is the community view of photoelectron spectroscopy benchmarked internationally?
  • Future directions of photoelectron spectroscopy in the UK. What investments would make the UK internationally leading?

If you wish to attend the Town Hall Meeting we would ask you to complete the survey included at the bottom of this page by 21 March 2016. If you have any queries please email EPSRCEquipmentFunding@epsrc.ac.uk.
