Organized by

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB)

This "lunch to lunch workshop" organized in cooperation with the National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB) is part of the series of HZB foresight workshops.

In this series HZB established a discussion of future projects and research activities in strong interaction with current and future users from universities, research institutes, and industry. Aim of the dialogue is to discuss future scientific fields and expectations, needs and requirements for cutting edge science with synchrotron radiation.

Participation to the workshop on Materials Metrology is free of charge.

Online registration

The registration deadline is on November 16th.
