Description

Do you have a burning problem in your business that could be solved with the use of the Ansto's Australian Synchrotron and it’s world renowned scientists?

South East Melbourne Innovation Partnership (SEMIP) is proud to bring you "Can a Scientist Solve your Problem?" pitch night on 31st October 6pm at the Eastern Innovation Business Centre.

The winner will receive $10,000 worth of Beam time at the Australian Synchrotron in Clayton with PR delivered by Scientell for the project.

Ansto's Australian Synchrotron is a source of powerful x-rays and infrared radiation that can be used for a wide range of scientific and technical purposes.

Some of the industries that currently benefit from the Synchrotron:

  • Advanced materials: ceramics, polymers, biomaterials, semiconductors, magnetic, superconducting and battery materials, opto-electronics
  • Biomedical: new diagnostics, bio-mimetic materials (artificial skin or organs), imaging and therapeutic techniques
  • Defence industries: new materials, sensors, heavy metal analysis, coatings
  • Environmental technologies and services: analysis of soils, fresh and salt water, air and atmospheric samples, pollutants, toxins and contaminants, environmental remediation
  • Food technology: analysis of food ingredients and packaging materials, product and process development
  • Manufacturing: metal alloys, catalysts, engineered components, stress analysis, fibres and textiles, adhesives, polymers and plastics, surfaces, interfaces and coatings

Example:

Laserbond Pty Ltd, a company based in Sydney, NSW is a leader in surface engineering techniques extending heavy equipment part life and reducing costs of refurbishment. The Australian Synchrotron has helped them validate their newest technologies which keep them at the forefront of this sector.

The event is proudly sponsored by LDB Group www.ldb.com.au
