Guided tours for the public

Unfortunately, following this long pandemic period, guided visits to our international research center are still suspended and we are unable to predict when we will be able to restart an ordinary course. In the meantime, stimulated by the new needs for distancing and looking for new communication paradigms, we are implementing a "Virtual visit" that will allow you to discover, among other things, spaces that are normally inaccessible such as the booster and the accumulation ring, the true  heart  of  the  synchrotron  machine. This experience will also be in an immersive and usable version with a 3D viewer system (Oculus).
