Meet our team at PPXRD-15 !
This symposium is designed to create a forum for the exchange of knowledge and cutting-edge ideas among those interested in the combined fields of X-ray Diffraction (XRD), including synchrotron, and pharmaceutical sciences. Day 1 will be a workshop covering powder XRD applications for pharmaceutical product development. Days 2-3 will have two and one-half days of technical presentations related to the analysis of pharmaceutical materials. This event is organized as a satellite meeting to the 24th Congress & General Assembly of the International Union of Crystallography - IUCr 2017.
Dr. Fabia Gozzo is member of the PPXRD Organizing Committee and with Dr Detlef Beckers (Panalytical) she chairs the Qualitative and Quantitative Phase Analysis sessions, Dr. Ruggero Frison gave an invited talk, Dr. Mathilde Reinle-Schmitt gave a contributing talk.
17-22 July 2017
International Nathiagali Summer College (INSC) on Physics and Contemporary Needs have been organized every year since 1976. 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 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.

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.
21-23 September 2016
Great success of the SILS Conference 2016, held in Bari last 21-23 September at the Physics Department. More than 70 registered participants, numerous invited talks and oral contributions and also contributions in the form of posters have animated the Conference presenting multiple activities going on in the different sectors in which the SILS operates.
Dr. Fabia Gozzo took part to the event as an invited speaker.
Villigen PSI, Switzerland
22-26 August 2016
The powder diffraction school 2016 at PSI was organized as a satellite meeting of the european crystallographic conference in Basel. The school, with an updated in-depth programme, gave a broad overview of all the modern possibilities using synchrotron radiation, starting with a general theoretical introduction to the various methods and applications. Hands-on practicals with selected synchrotron XRPD experiments and exhaustive analysis of the collected data were the central part of the school and provided the student with a solid fundamental understanding of these essential and versatile experimental techniques.
Drs. Fabia Gozzo and Ruggero Frison were invited as lecturers, Excelsus Structural Solutions sponsored the event.
12-15 June 2016
The aim of the Conference is to highlight the latest developments and achievements in the methodological, applicative and instrumental fields of powder diffraction.
EPDIC15 is a great forum that brings together scientists and instrumentation companies to discuss about progress in academic and industrial research related to powder diffraction.
ESS sponsored the event.
Fort Myers, Florida, USA
6-9 June 2016
PPXRD-14 once again provided a friendly forum for the exchange of knowledge and cutting-edge ideas among those interested in the combined fields of XRD and pharmaceutical sciences. This year, the symposium returned to Fort Myers, Florida, with the scenic Sanibel Harbour Marriott as our host, during the week of 6-9 June 2016. Nearly 40 attendees from ten countries were in attendance.
Drs Fabia Gozzo and Mathilde Reinle-Schmitt took part to the event as instructors for the full-day workshop on Monday, focusing on Quantitative Phase Analysis by XRPD. A review of recent advances in the quantitative phase analysis of pharmaceuticals by the internal standard method was given during the conference by Mathilde Reinle-Schmitt.
9-12 September 2015
Excelsus Structural Solutions in collaboration with Professor Carmelo Giacovazzo and the "G. Ciamician" Chemistry Department at the University of Bologna (Prof. Lucia Maini) organized the 1st of a series of advanced trainings addressed to a scientific industrial audience with interest in X-Ray Powder Diffraction and its applications to small organic molecular compounds.
