The LINX projects are all centred around 6 focus areas, which have been chosen on the basis of concrete materials problems for the industries.
The initial projects cover research in material science in the topics of:
– Colloid materials
– Drug discovery, protein based pharmaceuticals & protein engineering
– Sorption of liquids and humidity
– Fiber structure and dynamics
– Materials at operating and processing conditions
– Quality assurance
The governing principle of LINX is industry pull, 20% of the university budget is allocated to method development projects.
Each project will have an identical budget structure: 1/3 is for internal activities (man power), 1/3 is dedicated for large-facility beam time and 1/3 is anticipated Contract Research (CR) to be commissioned at the universities for confidential activities. The first 2/3 is covered by 50% by the grant, while CR is paid 100% by the company.
The scope of LINX is to create an ecosystem ensuring that Danish companies can exploit the potential of neutron and X-ray technology to its fullest.
This will be achieved by combining industrial problem solving, promoting innovation, educating a new generation of materials experts for industry and enhance industry-university collaboration.
The goal for innovation is to help foster a Danish industry within X-ray instrumentation and software.
The projects within each focus area include one or more industry partners and universities (KU, DTU and/or AU).
