Report of the Workshop for Industrial Researchers


On December 14–17, Brookhaven National Laboratory will host a virtual workshop for industry researchers to showcase the capabilities and expertise available at U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facilities located at Brookhaven Lab. The workshop is designed to benefit both researchers who have previously used Brookhaven 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 Brookhaven 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 presentations from industry users of Brookhaven Lab facilities, question-and-answer sessions, and opportunities to directly hear from Department of Energy program managers for your questions. The workshop will provide a unique "facilities open house" format, where attendees will spend time remotely in the labs observing Brookhaven's capabilities in action and engaging in technical discussions with Brookhaven experts. The workshop will also provide an opportunity for attendees to remotely 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 facilities can impact their R&D mission.
