EMP User Meeting
The fifth EMP User Meeting will be held as an in-person event at Lancaster University between the 12th and 16th June, 2023 . The aims of the user meeting are to bring together current and potential users of experimental facilities provided by the EMP consortium. The meeting will include sessions focussed on joint research activities of the consortium, industrial innovation and technological advances. It is a forum to share recent achievements, obtained results and challenges encountered with implementation of consortium activities. It will encourage academic, technical and industrial partners to share developed techniques and technologies and their transfer from the lab bench to commercial products.
