ANU Engineering Industry Alliance

*Invitation
An afternoon Forum: 'MATERIALS SCIENCE AND INNOVATION IN THE ACT: 
Building a value-adding network for science & business'
2.30pm - 4.30pm, Thursday 27 November at the Bradman Theatrette,  National
Convention Centre, Canberra (includes champagne & canapes from 4.10pm)

*Summary
The ANU Engineering Industry Alliance and BusinessACT invite you to 
the ACT launch of the Australian Materials Technology Network - a 
national network established to help industry access materials 
technology and expertise to help them stay competitive (the ACT Node 
of the AMTN will be located at the ANU).

In addition to the launch, you'll experience 'scissors, rock and 
paper' - three dynamic presentations on ANU related materials 
science. Scissors relates to ultrahard cutting materials originally 
crafted by the late Prof Ted Ringwood and now being marketed by 
Ringwood Superabrasives. Rock will feature the amazing explorations 
of a materials structure using a purpose built X-ray computer 
tomography facility (3D glasses will be handed out so you can see 
some amazing 3D structures including oil bearing rock). And paper 
will examine how basic materials science is opening up a whole new 
world of smart paper manufacture.

*Intended Audience
Those interested in industry collaboration and networking to access a 
wide range of materials technology, information and service. 
Materials related research work taking place at the ANU, in 
collaboration with industry and academia will be shown. Come along 
and find out what's on offer with the AMTN, how materials science can 
be important to industry in the ACT and join us in drinks to 
celebrate the launch of the ACT Node.
