Physics with Industry 2013



Lorentz Center, Leiden


Foundation FOM and the Technology Foundation STW would like to draw your attention to Physics with Industry 2013. The fourth edition of this successful workshop will be held from 18 - 22 November 2013 at the Lorentz Center in Leiden. During this week:
'A group of about fifty physicists come together to tackle industrial problems. After a thorough presentation of the problems by the companies on Monday, the scientists (mainly senior PhD’s and PostDocs supervised by a senior researcher) devote the entire week to dissecting, modelling, analysing and discussing one problem within their group and with the industrial representative. By Friday each group presents their solution to the companies.'
This year the following companies have submitted a case:
  • Tata Steel: ‘Moving strip stabilization’
  • Ingenieursbureau Oranjewoud: ‘Protection against fine dust: the line ESP’
  • Océ Technologies: ‘Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) used in analyzing the liquid penetration in porous paper’
  • Pamgene International: ‘Peptide aggregates in small volumes – detection and solution’
  • Holland Shielding Systems: ‘Smart shielding of electromagnetic waves’ (to be confirmed)
Registration will open on 2 September
More information on the Physics with Industry workshop including additional information about the five industrial problems will become available mid-August via the Lorentz Center website.
