IRUVX-PP meets industry
As part of the WP6 “Collaboration with industry”, the IRUVX-PP consortium organised a workshop “IRUVX-PP meets industry” on 1 March 2010 in Döllnsee near Berlin in connection with the 2nd IRUVX-PP Annual Meeting. There were 85 participants from industry, scientists and engineers from the partner institutes and 20 industrial exhibitors. The objective of the workshop was to open a dialogue with industry and focus on key industries for the setting up of new FEL facilities. Therefore the aim was to provide information to industry about required specification for realisation of advanced components and systems, required R&D collaboration with industry, outline of industry’s involvement and opportunities and give examples of collaboration with industry and technology transfer from both an institute perspective and from an industry perspective.
Common technical needs for construction of FELs have initially been identified in the areas of photon and e-beam diagnostics, X-ray optics, laser systems, synchronisation and control systems. Other areas, such as advanced undulator concepts, detector development, cryogenic modules and superconducting RF technology, will be addressed in future workshops. Very positive feedback has been received from both, the industry and engineers with the main feedback from industry indicating that networking with individual facilities is difficult and there is a distinct advantage in linking with EuroFEL with experts being present from all over Europe.
