Nuclear Physics Technology Showcase Event

Event Details

STFC Knowledge Exchange Workshop

Venue:  The Institute of Physics London

Date: 26 September 2013

 The STFC Innovations Club jointly with IOP Nuclear Physics Group, National Nuclear Laboratory and IOP Nuclear Industry Group are hosting a knowledge exchange event with industry on current developments and potential applications of nuclear physics in the key areas of healthcare, security, energy and the environment

 This event is intended for:

·        Industry interested to know more about current knowledge exchange and commercialisation opportunities from UK nuclear physics community 

·        Industry looking to find academic partners for specific development projects 

·        STFC funded researchers in nuclear physics wanting to get more involved in knowledge exchange and learn about good practice in this area and the funding available 

·        STFC researchers from allied fields looking to find partners in these areas.

UK nuclear physicists work at the forefront of detector technologies of high interest to UK industry including advanced gamma-ray tracking detectors, next generation scintillator detectors, ultra-fast photomultiplier tubes, highly-pixelated silicon and diamond detectors.

These technologies are already being deployed in a wide range of industrial and societal applications, including:

·        Environment monitoring – oil and gas exploration

·        Mobile X-ray and Gamma-ray cameras for analytical, medical and space applications

·        Medical imaging including PET/SPECT imaging

·        Nuclear data for reactor cycles, decommissioning and the future fusion programme

·        Homeland security.

The development and exploitation of these new technologies to the benefit of UK industry can only happen through close interaction between academics and industrial partners, leading to greater impact for the academic research.

This workshop aims to pull together the interest from both academia and industry in order to facilitate knowledge exchange (KE) between STFC-funded researchers (HEIs and labs) and industry with a view of exploiting advances in the nuclear physics area. 

The workshop will further highlight funding opportunities to support KE relationships around nuclear physics R&D and industrial/societal applications as well as provide an opportunity to hear an update on the state-of-the-art from all speakers. In addition there will be a poster session detailing industry relevant work carried out by the university research groups.

The authors should submit an abstract for approval as part of the registration process.
