Applied Physics and Technological Research
Innovation is the key to growth, competitiveness and thus social well-being in the 21st century. Providing new solutions to rapidly emerging societal problems is therefore crucial in an ever more knowledge-intensive economy. In this framework, the specific goals of technological research are to promote excellence science, to excite competitive industries and to establish a better society.
INFN support applied physics and technological research through the 5th National Scientific Committe (CSN5): Legnaro labs in particular are a national and international reference for the development of the future prototypes and for the realization of the nowadays particle accelerators. They are employed in fundamental physics research, as well as in other research fields and in economic and social life. A strong interdisciplinary activity concerns developments in radiation detectors, electronics and information technology. These technologies have found broad applications in other science fields, as well as health, defense, cultural heritage and environment preservation.
In biomedical field, technological research found relevant application in medical imaging, cancer therapy, dosimetry and treatment planning system in radiotherapy with proton and ion beam.
The following project at LNL are funded by CSN5 in year 2017.
