Agreement will speed up the exchange of knowledge about techniques and uses of synchrotron light between researchers from Brazil and Canada 

Over the last decade synchrotron light has developed into one of the most valuable scientific tools for the investigation of new materials, bio-medical samples, and biological and chemical processes. To strengthen existing programs, joint development of new programs and techniques, a new memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed by the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) and the Canadian Light Source (CLS). The technical and scientific collaboration agreement aims to promote knowledge exchange to advance research in synchrotron science and its applications, especially in the field of agriculture.
