Where Business and Science Connect

The Board of the International Irradiation Association (iia), our Regional Sponsors Aérial-CRT and IBA Industrial invite you to join them at the 19th International Meeting on Radiation Processing (IMRP19). This event will be held during the first week of April 2019 in Strasbourg, the lovely historical city at the heart of Europe in the beautiful region of Alsace.

IMRP is ‘Where Business and Science Connect’ because we believe that good things happen when scientists and industrialists meet. One of the primary objectives of IMRP is to provide during a few days an environment that will catalyse dialogue and encourage future collaboration between the two communities. IMRP is also the showcase of the irradiation sector by providing to all actors an opportunity to present their more recent works, their products and their services. But most of all IMRP is a forum where participants learn, network and debate.

Radiation science and technology and their environment are changing. So is IMRP. While the format of the conference remains globally the same, a number of changes will take place to offer more time to visit the exhibition, to attend commercial presentations or to discuss around posters, more opportunities to interact with speakers, more than one possibility to visit state-of-the-art irradiation facilities. Thanks to the University of Reims, IMRP19 will also innovate by offering a three-day pre-conference course to the young scientists who will be part of the next generation of irradiation scientists and professionals. Finally, the Welcome Reception and the Gala Dinner will as usual be the social highlights of the event. Make sure that you do not miss this IMRP.

Rendez-vous à Strasbourg! We look forward to meeting you at IMRP19.

Chairman of the International Irradiation Association
