Event description
To excite new users, and stimulate existing users, of national facilities at Harwell and to deliver impact for The University of Manchester.

About this event

We warmly invite colleagues from the University to find out what The University of Manchester at Harwell (UoMaH) can do to support your research activities at Harwell Campus facilities.

The event is aimed at people who have never used the Harwell facilities and also experienced users. On day 1, representatives from Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) will showcase the capabilities of Diamond Light Source, ISIS Neutron & Muon Source and the Scientific Computing Division. The day will close with a networking session.

On Day 2, event participants will identify and explore research opportunities during sand-pit sessions.

The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) at Culham and the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) science division at Buxton, will also be represented at the event.

The University of Manchester at Harwell (UoMaH) is led by Professor Neil Bourne and based in Diamond Light Source in Oxfordshire. It is a portal between the Harwell community and University of Manchester researchers.

Further information about the event is available from Jane Westwell (jane.westwell@manchester.ac.uk).

Organiser The University of Manchester at Harwell

Organiser of The University of Manchester at Harwell Roadshow

The University of Manchester at Harwell (UoMaH) provides an interface between researchers at The University of Manchester and the national facilities at Harwell (Diamond Light Source, ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, Central Laser Facility and the Scientific Computing Department).
Our core technical team provides equipment and support for high risk experiments and those carried out under extreme sample environments. In addition to support offered to our colleagues in Manchester, we welcome working with researchers from other academic and industrial organisations.
UoMaH research fellows are based in Harwell but affiliated with different departments within the University’s Faculty of Science and Engineering. Each fellow pursues research in their own area of interest (advanced materials, catalysis, electronic structure and magnetism, fusion, mineral physics, subsurface energy and storage, and resilience).
