Synchrotron Light Industry Applications

Project description

Strengthening synchrotron research capacity in Poland

SOLARIS is the first synchrotron built in Poland, under the auspices of the Jagiellonian University. The EU-funded Sylinda project will boost the research capacity of SOLARIS. The synchrotron radiation facility will thus be able to upgrade its X-ray absorption spectrometer. This could result in more effective collaborations with industrial partners in the pharmaceutical, biology, chemical and cosmetics sectors. The staff will be reinforced with an industrial liaison officer, a beamline scientist and a grant officer. Special focus will be placed on improving project management, proposal preparation and administration skills. Furthermore, the project will organise a summer school on science management for early-stage researchers. Their active participation in industrial research projects will broaden their views regarding industry innovation and funding opportunities.
