Technology underpins every aspect of the scientific activity of our research centre. We develop and use advanced technologies and are a test bed for their application to carry out our role of research infrastructure. The technologies and know-how we develop are then made available through a continuous technology-transfer process. Although developed for the purpose of research, many technologies in accelerators, magnets and cryogenics, detectors and instrumentation, electronics, information treatment and communication, as well as mechanical, vacuum and optical engineering, find a wide range of applications in everyday’s life: healthcare, energy and environment, industrial processes. The Industrial Liaison Office (ILO) of Elettra - Sincrotrone Trieste manages technology transfer and promotes the use of laboratory facilities in applied research and for industrial applications.
