CERIC-ERIC New Users Symposium 2015
Photons, Ions, Neutrons and Electrons combined in Materials and Biomaterials.
Premier workshop on multi-technique research.
24th - 25th June 2015, Krakow - Poland

On the 24th and 25th of June, CERIC-ERIC, in collaboration with the new Polish synchrotron SOLARIS (a facility soon to be available to CERIC users), organized the CERIC New Users’ Symposium 2015, focused on the CERIC multi-technique research approach.

The symposium aimed to help new users to get acquainted with the structure and opportunities of a distributed research infrastructure and with the demands of a successful CERIC multi-technique proposal, and to increase the quality of received proposals and research projects. The event hosted almost 50 participants, who were introduced to the complementary methods of the CERIC Partner Facilities by beamline and instrument scientists and experienced CERIC users. The participants also presented their own single- and multi-technique research in poster sessions and participated in Q&A sessions to open the discussion and to optimize the outcome of the symposium.
