Pressemitteilung: Frischer Wind von den jungen Wissenschaftlern in der Partikel- und Dispersionsforschung

Berlin, 7. Dezember 2017: Vom 29. bis 30. Januar 2018 veranstaltet die LUM GmbH zum 8. Mal die nun schon traditionelle Internationale Konferenz zur Dispersionsanalyse und Materialtestung in Berlin. Auf dieser interdisziplinären Veranstaltung treffen Partikelforscher auf Produktformulierer, Anwendungstechniker auf Akademiker extrem unterschiedlicher Fachgebiete. Alle eint jedoch die Anwendung der von LUM entwickelten STEP-Technologie® für die Partikel- und Dispersionscharakterisierung bzw. der CAT-Technologie zur zeitsparenden Bestimmung von Adhäsionskräften und Verbundfestigkeiten. 
Ein Highlight der Veranstaltung wird wieder die Session, die dem Young Scientist Award 2018 gewidmet ist. Dieser wird von der LUM GmbH für herausragende wissenschaftliche Leistungen auf dem Gebiet der Partikel- und Dispersionsanalyse sowie Materialtestung ausgeschrieben und nach festgelegten Qualitätskriterien vergeben. Aus den Bewerbern wurden die vier besten Kandidaten nominiert und eingeladen ihre interessanten Forschungsergebnisse auf dem Workshop vorzutragen und zu diskutieren...

Press release: Fresh ideas in particle and dispersion sciences

Berlin, 7 December 2017: The 8th International Conference Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing is hosted by LUM GmbH in Berlin, Germany, from 29-30 January 2018. Here, during this now traditional interdisciplinary event, particle scientists meet product formulators; application engineers meet scholars from extremely different application areas. All have in common the use of STEP-Technology® for particle and dispersion characterization respectively the use of CAT-Technology® for the timesaving determination of adhesion forces and composite strength. Both technologies developed by LUM.

Once again, one highlight of the event will be the session dedicated to Young Scientist Award 2018. This prize is donated by LUM GmbH for outstanding scientific achievements in the fields of particle and dispersion analysis and materials testing. From all applicants the best four candidates were nominated and invited to discuss their results during the conference...
