Last October 20, DSM hosted the Dutch NMR Discussion Group 2017 at the campus. More than hundred scientists, from both industry and academia, shared their recent developments in Magnetic Resonance via presentations and poster sessions.
The close vicinity of the campus led to the active contribution from leading NMR groups in the Euregion, such as RWTH Aachen, Jülich Forschungszentrum and KU Leuven. Recent developments in materials and protein characterization by liquid, solid and low field NMR have been discussed, as well as more fundamental research on topics like imaging, solid state NMR, and new software tools.
The informal setting of the event at the campus resulted in active sharing of experiences between industry and academia. Several new contacts have been made and new collaborations have been initiated.
It was impressive to see that there is a very active NMR community present in the
Netherlands and Euregion, from which both the applied and fundamental sciences can benefit significantly.
The NMR-DG was sponsored by DSM, Enabling Technologies, Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Bruker, Buchem, Praxair, ACD/Labs, and Magritek.
