Innovation in materials characterisation: UK-Japan studies on energy-related materials using Synchrotron radiation

The EPSRC Physical Sciences Theme, STFC's ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) are holding a joint symposium to bring together researchers in the UK and Japan working on characterisation of materials for energy applications. The meeting will be jointly chaired by Professor Masaharu Oshima, University of Tokyo and Dr Philip King, ISIS Neutron and Muon Source.

The symposium will provide a unique opportunity to:

  • network with researchers in the UK and Japan working on characterisation of energy related materials and form new connections;
  • hear about the cutting-edge research enabled by large facilities in the UK and Japan;
  • engage with EPSRC, ISIS and JSPS on their current initiatives and activities enabling international collaboration in this area.

If you wish to attend the symposium please complete the short form on this page by 17:00 on Thursday 18 January 2018. Attendance will primarily be on a first-come, first-served basis; however, we do reserve the right to select from interested groups to ensure a balanced and productive meeting.
