The defined objective of the RGA User Group charity is:
The advancement of education for the public benefit in vacuum science and technology by promoting understanding and application through an annual meeting and other educational activities.
The Vacuum Symposium in 2015 aims to deliver a high quality, interesting and wide-ranging programme, that reaches out to a diverse spectrum of vacuum users. Over two days the conference will cover applications, advances, innovation and emerging technologies. The Symposium is composed of meetings from different organisers running in parallel when possible.
Two different half day training courses are being run on both days for those using vacuum technologies for the first time or needing to brush up on their knowledge.
