INTERACTION WITH THE PRODUCTIVE SECTOR
One of LNLS’s forms of interaction with the productive sector is the establishment of Cooperation Agreements between laboratory and industry to respond to complex issues raised by the client through the expertise of each LNLS researcher and the use of the laboratory’s unique infrastructure.
Technology Transfer and Licensing:
Industry interaction can also occur through the transfer of innovative technologies, processes or products generated in the LNLS and the licensing of these technologies to partners.
Delivery of Complex Services:
LNLS provides the industry with complex services typically not found in other research centers and/or universities. Even if a service is found elsewhere, the characteristics of the synchrotron light source and its experimental stations lead to significantly shorter response times.
Internal Technological Demands:
Finally, the Laboratory also stimulates the development of technology in the industries by means of technological demands of equipment, devices and complex systems for maintenance of the current synchrotron light source, UVX, and for the construction of the new synchrotron light source, Sirius.
