University of Leeds

The Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica (INRIM)

INRIM logoThe INRIM is the primary metrology institute of Italy, with about 230 employees, about 80 researchers and 80 postdocs/PhD students. The group on magnetism, incorporating about 25 researchers and technicians, has a long tradition in the study of magnetism and magnetic materials. In particular, it has a long experience in the preparation and characterisation of magnetic materials, magnetic measurements, investigations of magnetisation processes, and studies of general aspects of non-equilibrium physics, hysteresis, and noise phenomena

Aalto University

Aalto logoEstablished in 2010 from the merger of three Finnish universities - Helsinki University of Technology, Helsinki School of Economics, and Helsinki University of Art and Design - Aalto University is a new university with centuries of experience, with the ambitious goal to become one of the world's top universities by 2020. The university has 20000 students, 5000 staff members, and 350 professors. In a recent Research Assessment Exercise, the Department of Applied Physics, part of the School of Science, was given the best total score of all the departments of the Aalto University, reflecting the world class quality of the physics research pursued at the Aalto University.

Ghent University

Ghent logoWith 38,000 students, Ghent University is the second largest university in Belgium. The Department of Electrical Energy Systems and Automation, (faculty of Engineering Sciences, 2,800 students) has a long standing tradition in modeling magnetic processes at the macroscopic as well as at the microscopic level. In collaboration with the Condenced Physics Group (UGhent), we developed the open-source micromagnetic software package MuMax running on Graphics Processing Units.

The University of Glasgow

Glasgow logoFounded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. The university has over 20000 students and 6000 staff. 96% of the research-active staff have been independently assessed as producing research of international importance.

The Glasgow Materials & Condensed Matter Physics Group has been involved in understanding and developing advanced materials for over 30 years. At present we have 8 academic staff and research fellows, 2 postdoctoral researchers, 10 research students and 4 support staff. We study a wide range of materials and enjoy an international reputation in the areas of magnetic materials, semiconductors and ferroelectrics, all studied using electron microscopy and associated techniques. Our research is underpinned by instrumentation development and excellent collaborative links with both academic and industrial partners worldwide.

LTi Drives GmbH

LTI logoLTi Drives GmbH was founded in 1971 and has developed into a family owned group of companies with more than 40 years of experience in the field of electronic drive engineering disposing of an extensive product range and vast technological know-how in complex drive and motion control tasks. In 2011 the companies belonging to LTi had 1000 employees and a turnover of 180 million Euro. Outstanding results can only be achieved if all components of the control and drive system are optimally attuned to each other and the specific requirements of the machinery manufacturer are fulfilled. This is a challenge which LTi consistently meets: With the CNC controls from the subsidiary Andron GmbH, the ServoOne drive systems from LTi DRiVES GmbH and the magnetic bearing mounted machining spindles from LEViTEC GmbH the best-quality components are on the market and LTi is able to combine them into uniquely high-performance systems for the benefit of machinery manufacturing customers.

Omicron NanoTechnology

Omicron logoOmicron NanoTechnology is the world’s leading supplier of analytical instrumentation solutions in nanotechnology research and development. We create innovative instrumentation with state-of-the-art performance and combine analytical tools into sophisticated multi-technique analytical systems. This is our “multi-technique” philosophy. In June 14th 2011, Omicron joined the Oxford Instruments Group as a part of the “Nanotechnology Tools” division, which already encompasses Oxford Instruments NanoAnalysis, Oxford Instruments NanoScience and Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology.

VDMA - German Engineering Association

VDMA logoThe VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau - German Engineering Federation) is one of the key association service providers in Europe and offers the largest engineering industry network in Europe. It was founded in 1892 and represents today more than 3,100 companies in the engineering industry, many of which are small or medium-sized enterprises. With about 975,000 employees all over Germany and a sales turnover of 201 billion Euros (2011) the industry is the biggest employer and one of the leading sectors of the German industry. VDMA is a non-for profit organization financed and steered by their members. VDMA Productronics is one of the 40 sector associations within VDMA gathering about 70 members along the entire value chain of electronics production.

Nature Nanotechnology

NPG logoNature Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes papers of the highest quality and significance in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The journal covers research into the design, characterization and production of structures, devices and systems that involve the manipulation and control of materials and phenomena at atomic, molecular and macromolecular scales. Both bottom-up and top-down approaches - and combinations of the two - are covered. Nature Nanotechnology offers readers and authors high visibility, access to a broad readership, high standards of copy editing and production, rigorous peer review, rapid publication, and independence from academic societies and other vested interests.

3CIN Foundation

3cin logoThe 3CIN Foundation (an Institute for Studies in Science, Scientific Culture & Innovation associated to the University of Salamanca) works since its constitution in 2008 in the fields of

The design, development and evaluation of scientific programs and policies
Science and technology public communication
Scientific and technological journalism
Public engagement in science and technology
Official master and research degrees in scientific & technological management, science communication and science & technology evaluation

Hitachi Europe Limited

Hitachi logoThe Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory, (HCL) is part of the R&D Centre of Hitachi Europe Ltd, and shares a building and facilities with the Microelectronics Research Centre of Cambridge University. The aim of the laboratory is to develop new concepts for future micro- and opto-electronics. HCL is a world leader in the development of nanoscale electronic devices, and has a track record of developing new device concepts based on the physics of electron transport in nanostructures. Outstanding achievements are the world-first demonstrations of single electron memory cells and single electron logic circuits, and more recently spin Hall effect and related spintronic transport systems.
