April 21, 2023 - CNR President Maria Chiara Carrozza's visit to Trieste on the occasion of CNR's centennial celebrations, part of which took place today inside the Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste International Research Center, was also the occasion for the important signing the new Framework Agreement between the two institutions.
Object of the agreement is the cooperation designed to maintain and develop forms of collaboration for the joint realization of scientific programs of common interest aimed primarily at promoting and encouraging research in the field of fine matter analysis, nanotechnology and nanoscience, in the development of innovative materials, and in the development of advanced instrumentation, particularly for the use of synchrotron radiation.

In addition, Elettra and CNR intend to promote the use of synchrotron radiation by Italian and international scientific users by cooperating in the management of existing beamlines and laboratories, promoting investment in maintaining, securing and renewing the scientific instrumentation of beamlines and laboratories, and in assisting users in carrying out research activities.

“The centennial celebrations of the CNR, which are partly hosted by Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste today, have an important meaning for us. This is a significant birthday in which we participate enthusiastically, in the name of the long-standing historical collaboration with CNR. 9 of the 27 Elettra's beamlines and experimental stations are operated together with the CNR, and important collaborations are also in place on our free-electron laser FERMI. This collaboration is further consolidated today through the signing of the new Framework Agreement, which establishes, among other things, that for the next 5 years Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste and the CNR will be partners in a crucial phase of revitalization and renewal of our research center.

The construction of the new and more powerful Elettra 2.0 lightsource, which will be at the service of the Italian and international scientific community with a light 1000 times brighter than the current one, in order to carry out even more cutting-edge experiments in the context of investigations into new materials, new drugs and future technologies, will see Elettra and CNR together again in this challenge that concerns the next 30 years of Italian research." These are the words of Alfonso Franciosi, President and CEO of Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste.
