The Soft Microscopy Centre will
host an industrial workshop aimed for industrial scientists,
specialists, and research managers, and academic scientists with an
interest in applied science and soft microscopy. The purpose of the
workshop is to establish new collaborations, strengthen the applied
research in the field of soft materials structures and properties based
on industrial needs and to start joint projects.
The aims are to
demonstrate the possibilities with microscopy and understanding
microstructures for solving industrial and societal challenges, inform
about the environments and to visualize the capabilities of the new
forefront microscopes and techniques.
The workshop is comprised
of lectures by leading industrial and academic scientists, presentations
of the different environments, and guided tours to the microscopes.
There will also be a session when challenges and possibilities will be
discussed in small groups.

About the SOFT Microscopy Centre
The SOFT Microscopy Centre
is a joint
effort between Chalmers University of Technology and Research Institutes
of Sweden (RISE). The centre is part of the Material Science Area of
Advance at Chalmers. The centre has unique competence concerning
material properties, structures and preparation of soft materials and
the state-of-the-art instrumental equipment at the Eva Olsson group at
Chalmers and the Soft Materials Science group at RISE Agrifood and
Bioscience. The SOFT Microscopy Centre is a strategic initiative with
the vision to establish new concepts for soft material design.
High-resolution imaging and spectroscopy are combined with in-depth
knowledge of sensitive soft materials containing water, lipids and
functional interfacial structures.
The aims of the centre are to:
- Establish new concepts in structure design for a new generation of soft biomaterials with tailored properties based on microstructure research.
- Develop new methods for microstructure research including 3D imaging, in situ and dynamic experiments over a range of length and time scales giving a competitive edge.
- Be the evident partner in structure-related international programs and national infrastructures.
- Create an environment where academia and industry can interact with expertise and access the new infrastructure introduced by the centre.
