The Workshop for Industry Researchers, originally scheduled for May 2020, has been postponed to a later time this year. We look forward to seeing you then!

Brookhaven National Laboratory will host a workshop for industry researchers to showcase the capabilities and expertise available at Brookhaven User Facilities. The workshop is designed to benefit both researchers who have previously used Brookhaven Lab facilities for their work and those who are interested in learning about accessing them for the first time.

The workshop will inform researchers from industry about the leading-edge capabilities and expertise at BNL facilities, and provide details about the mechanisms for accessing them. The workshop will also more broadly introduce participants to DOE programs designed to support industry research.

The workshop agenda will feature invited presentations from industry users of Brookhaven Lab facilities, question-and-answer sessions, and roundtable discussions with Department of Energy program managers. The workshop will provide a unique ‘facilities open house’ format, where attendees will spend time in the labs observing Brookhaven’s unique, world-leading capabilities in action and engaging in technical discussions with Brookhaven experts. The workshop will also provide an opportunity for attendees to measure their own samples, collecting meaningful data to take home that day.

We have created a workshop program that focuses on researchers working in all major industry sectors, including: energy storage, petrochemicals, microelectronics, advanced materials, advanced manufacturing, and pharmaceuticals. Attendees from companies of all sizes will benefit from learning how Brookhaven Lab facilities can impact their R&D mission.
