A new UK Roadmap for Electron Microscopy in the Physical Science: Initial Town Hall Meeting Launch

7 July meeting will provide opportunity to refresh Roadmap and determine future strategy

An initial Town Hall Launch meeting to refresh the Roadmap for Electron Microscopy in the Physical and Engineering Sciences is taking place on 7 July at Imperial College London.

In 2014, under the auspices of the Royal Microscopical Society (RMS), the Electron Microscopy and Analysis Group (EMAG) of the Institute of Physics and the then sole National Electron Microscopy Facility (SuperSTEM), a working group on the provision of Electron Microscopy in the Physical and Engineering Sciences (EMPESWG) published a report following various Town Hall meetings.

Further information on the working group and the report is available here 

Since 2014 there have been a number of developments including the continued renewal of the SuperSTEM facility, the development of new National Electron Microscopy Facilities at Diamond/Harwell (ePSIC is associated with the Physical Sciences) as well as significant investment in a variety of new institutional capabilities.

Hence it would appear timely to refresh the Roadmap for Electron Microscopy in the Physical and Engineering Sciences and to determine a future strategy for both infrastructure investment and user accessThis initial Town Hall Launch meeting aims to outline the proposed process and to seek initial feedback from attendees.

Event Organisers: Electron Microscopy and Analysis Group of the Institute of Physics, Royal Microscopical Society, SuperSTEM Facility at Daresbury and ePSIC Facility at Diamond.
