In the framework of AIDA, the FP7 project on Advanced European Infrastructures for Detectors at Accelerators, CERN and other very prominent research infrastructures are organising an Academia-Industry Matching event on the use of Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) and Thin-Gap Chambers(TGC) in fundamental research and in other domains such as mining, homeland security, cultural heritage and the sciences of the Earth, on 24-25 March 2014 in Vienna.
The purpose of this event is to bring together academia and industry to address the needs of the former and the capability of the latter with a view to fostering collaborations for manufacturing the devices needed by the research community and commercializing the results in applications of economic interest for society.
Currently, RPC and TGC are very prominently used in research where future projects call for very large-area detectors requiring a strong involvement of industry. Recent ideas and projects in other scientific areas and in mining and homeland security indicate a very good market prospect for these technologies when fully industrialized, since they can cost-effectively compete but also overcome limitations or shortcomings of those that are in exploitation.
We would like to invite your company/institution to take part in this networking event to assess the pertinence of RPC and TGC for your business/organisation and evaluate with the rest of the academia the prospect of pursuing the industrialization of these technologies further.
Attendance to the event is free of charge but for logistic reasons, registration is compulsory.
Registration is now open. At this occasion, you will have the possibility of requesting a booth and poster stands to present your company.
