Diamond Light Source is committed to keeping the UK at the forefront of scientific research and providing our 14,000 strong user base in both academia and industry access to our state-of-the-art synchrotron to fulfil their research goals covering a wide variety of scientific disciplines.

Together with the Technopolis Group, we have produced a comprehensive study that aims to measure and demonstrate Diamond’s scientific, technological, societal and economic benefits. With the study now at publication stage, we want to share the findings with our users, stakeholders and the general public via this webinar.
