16th European Powder Diffraction Conference


John McIntyre Conference Centre, Edinburgh University, UK

1st - 4th July 2018




EPDIC16 is dedicated to all aspects of the analysis of polycrystalline materials by diffraction methods. The Conference will highlight the latest developments in powder diffraction including methodology, data analysis and instrumental advances. EPDIC16 will bring together practitioners from institutes, universities and instrumentation companies to discuss progress in academic and industrial research related to powder diffraction.

Excelsus was presenting recent progresses in exploring real time amorphization in organic pharmaceutical compounds via in situ ball milling and the applications of PDF analysis to organic molecular compounds.




1st Spring Pharmaceutical Synchrotron X-ray Powder Diffraction Workshop

Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN 47907, USA

6th-8th May 2018


Advanced analytical techniques are among the keys to success in drug discovery. To remain competitive, pharmaceutical companies must stay at the forefront of innovation and judiciously apply cutting-edge techniques to boost the efficiency and outcomes of pharmaceutical drug development. In this context, Synchrotron X-Ray Powder Diffraction (S-XRPD) is a very powerful technique to add to the analytical toolbox.

The SPS-XRPD workshop will highlight the most exciting recent developments in pharmaceutical R&D, achieved thanks to S-XRPD. It also offers the opportunity to join an active network of synchrotron and industrial pharmaceutical scientists, collaborating to promote awareness of this technique to a wider audience and lower the barriers to access synchrotron characterization techniques.


Excelsus Structural Solutions is co-organizer of the workshop with Purdue University and will participate to the whole event. Don't hesitate to register and meet our team there!

Over the years about 850 eminent scientists and speakers including 07 Nobel Laureates drawn from leading universities, research centers and industries of advanced countries have lectured as faculty at INSC and shared their knowledge with more than 1100 foreign scientists from over 75 developing countries and 8500 scientists from Pakistani R&D institutes and universities.



Innovation in Practice - Processes and Productivity

Park InnovAare, Villigen, Switzerland

7th March 2017


INNOVATION in PRACTICE is the platform for the practice-oriented exchange of ideas on all aspects of innovation and technology management. In the form of one- or multi-part sessions, the format facilitates an in-depth discussion of specific issues, for example from the areas of R&D strategy, product development, technology transfer and IP management. The format is designed to address R&D leaders from industry as well as representatives from scientific research who want to cultivate the dialogue on equal footing.

In the session 2/3 of 'Innovation in practice' focused on 'Processes and Productivity', Dr. Fabia Gozzo (ESS) and Dr. Arnaud Grandeury (Novartis Pharma AG) presented a practical example of a close collaboration, demonstrating that innovation is not a uniquely internal process and often emerges from joint projects. 



More about the event

Baltic TRAM opening conference

DESY, Hamburg, Germany

26th October 2016

Investments in research and innovative capacity provide an opportunity for boosting competitiveness and growth in Europe. Large-scale research infrastructures offer huge potential in testing state-of-the-art solutions. But how do we secure efficient and balanced access to these facilities? This conference described the situation, highlighted some new ideas and projects in Europe and discussed what structures are needed for better research-industry cooperation, looking at how academia can support companies in their innovation processes.

The contribution of spin-off companies which act as a bridge between industry and large scale facilities was described by Excelsus Structural Solutions in the talk: ‘Excelsus Structural Solutions as an Intermediary between Industry and Advanced Analytical Services based at Large Facilities'. Part of this presentation is available for download.
