INTERACTION WITH THE PRODUCTIVE SECTOR
Cooperation Agreements: One of the forms of interaction with the productive sector are cooperation agreements establishment between laboratory and industry to respond to complex issues raised by the customer through the expertise of LNLS’s researchers and the use of the unique laboratory infrastructure of the synchrotron light source.
Technology Transfer and Licensing: The interaction with industries can also happen through the transfer of technologies, processes and innovative products, internally generated at LNLS and the licensing of these technologies to partners for their insertion in the market.
Delivery of Complex Services: LNLS offers complex services that are typically not found in other research centers and/or universities. And even if a service is found elsewhere, the characteristics of the synchrotron light source and its experimental stations lead to significantly faster response times.
Internal Technological Demands: Finally, the laboratory also encourages the development of technology in industries through technological demands of equipment, complex devices and systems for maintaining the current synchrotron light source UVX and for the construction of the new synchrotron light source Sirius.
