EU Horizon2020 program SYLINDA
Hochschule Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences (Germany) in collaboration with the Physics Institute of Bonn University and National Synchrotron Radiation Centre SOLARIS Jagiellonian University.
This project contributes to strengthen the capacities of research institutions of the widening countries. In particular, SYLINDA aims at boosting the research and development capabilities of SOLARIS, the Polish Synchrotron facility, based on the experience brought by the partners’ consortium: Synchrotron SOLARIS (Poland), ALBA Synchrotron (Spain), Hochschule Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitat Bonn (Germany).
The X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) beamline SOLABS (XAS-HN) of SOLARIS is to be upgraded with a high-resolution spectrometer which will make it scientifically excellent and very attractive for academic and industrial users dealing with low atomic number elements studies.
New industry cooperation avenues with the pharmaceutical-, rubber-, agro-, (micro-) biological, chemical- and cosmetics sectors will be consequently opened. A focused communication plan together with an industrial workshop will put SOLARIS in the European scene of those scientific and industrial areas.
All those activities are the first step forward that will be sustained beyond the end of this project thanks to the networking and links established with the experienced partners that will open the doors to SOLARIS for future collaborations with other European and worldwide research institutions. No doubt this project aims to represent a quantum leap for SOLARIS in research and development terms.
Start: January 2021
