Groundbreaking R&D opportunities for industry

Coordinator: (HZG)

Our latest events:

Neutrons for the Biotech Industry

Zaragoza, Spain 28th-29th March 2019


Lyon, France 1st April 2019

Videos and animations on Neutron Depth Profiling, Residual Stress and SANS techniques.

Find out how these techniques work and what they can be used for on our Neutron Diffraction and Small Angle Scattering pages!

Free measurements for industry

SINE2020’s Industry Consultancy programme demonstrates the potential of neutron technology to companies not yet familiar with neutron analytical techniques. As part of its drive to encourage industrial users to exploit the unique properties of neutron beams for R&D, SINE2020 can arrange for test measurements and feasibility studies to be performed free of charge for European companies. You can also read our article on the aims of SINE2020 and Industry here

For further information on what we have to offer and on the application process go to the offer section .

For examples of industrial materials investigated with neutrons, please go to our Case Studies page .

The offer:

  • Rapid access: Fast-stream processing for industrial applications, optimising result lead times.
  • Expert Consultancy: Industrial R&D professionals in collaboration with experienced specialists from European neutron centres.
  • Easy-to-understand results: The local experts will provide data analysis and a report tailored to the customer’s needs.
  • Confidentiality guaranteed: Activity covered by non-disclosure agreements. Only company name and measurement type to be published.
  • Flexible Services: In many cases  industrial processes and conditions can be re-created in the test laboratory. Final data analysis and reporting are provided.
