New understanding establishes parameters for a broad partnership in research of mutual interest, such as superconducting materials.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), one of the world’s leading laboratories in particle physics and the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), an organization supervised by the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology for Innovations (MCTI), have signed today, December 4th, a wide scientific and technological collaboration agreement.
The agreement establishes legal conditions for collaboration in research and resource sharing in any area of mutual interest, especially in technologies applied to the physics of particle accelerators, magnets, and superconducting materials. Such knowledge is of enormous value for the development of new technologies, both in science and in the industry.

LNLS opens a call for proposals in other research areas for macromolecular crystallography experiments
In the last few months, the first experiments on the MANACÁ beamline were carried out by external researchers dedicated to studying the molecular mechanisms related to the action of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Now, continuing the scientific commissioning phase of this beamline, researchers from other fields are invited to submit their proposals to use the MANACÁ beamline, dedicated to macromolecule crystallography, which allows the study of the three-dimensional structure of human proteins and enzymes and pathogens, with atomic resolution.
