NMI3 Industry Workshop at ICNS 2013

As requested by the European Commission, NMI3 will hold two events to explore interaction between neutron and muon facilities with industry. There will be two events, one this year concerning 'industry as a supplier' to our facilities while the second, to be held in 2014, will focus on 'industry as a user'. The purpose of these meetings is to define how this interaction between facilities and industry can be improved and developed in the forthcoming Horizon 2020 programme.
