    • The ALBA Synchrotron Light Facility R. Pascual Chairman Executive Commission Barcelona , 24 de maig de 2012Amb la col·laboració:
    • What are the Research Infrastructures? The Research Infrastructures are tools to provide essential services to the scientific community for pure or applied research They can be related to all the scientific and technological fields, from the social sciences to the astronomy, through genomics and nanotechnologies. Examples include libraries, databases, biological archives, clean rooms, communication networks, research vessels, satellites and navigation centres, coastal observatories, telescopes, synchrotrons and accelerators. They can have a unique location or can be distributed or can be virtual. (European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures, ESFRI)Amb la col·laboració:
    • ESFRI Roadmap • Social Sciences and Humanities • Environmental Sciences • Energy • Biological and Medical Sciences • Materials and Analytical Facilities • Physical Sciences and Engineering • e-Infrastructures European Strategy Forum on Research InfrastructuresAmb la col·laboració:
    • The smallest, the Lawrence cyclotron (1929) The largest, the LHC at CERN, GenevaAmb la col·laboració:
    • • To observe we always need: – A photon (or other particles) source – The objet to be observed – A detector outgoing photons – A system to reconstruct the imageAmb la col·laboració:

    • Why ALBA? – To have an important tool to meet the demand of pure and applied research (public and private) in many different fields – To get experience in the field of accelerator technologies – To have a large scientific installation at the international level • Around such facilities often take place the crossed fertilization from research to development and to innovation – To increase the know-how of companies • It is necessary to get non standard instrumentation, both at the installation and running phases (more than 30 years)Amb la col·laboració:
    • Firsts steps of ALBA 1992: After the recommendation of a Committee of the regional administration the construction is announced 1993: A Steering Committee is nominated and a training program is established 1995: Agreement between Spanish and Catalan governments to make a detailed study (within the IFAE) March 2002: Formal agreement between governments March 2003: CELLS is created June 2003: First meeting of the CELLS Council October 2003: Start of the activityAmb la col·laboració:

    • Business Opportunities in Large Facilities • Supplies and services contracts. • Technologies acquisitions (supplies, available technologies, collaboration projects , etc.) • References • Technicians Studies from CERN, ESRF, Berkeley,… From these studies we can say that, in numbers, the returns from the collaborations with “big science” centres present average multiplier factors in the range from 2.7 (ESA) to 3.7 (CERN)Amb la col·laboració:
    • General idea behind the collaborations If you have an apple and I have an apple, and we exchange these apples, then you and I still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea, and we exchange theses ideas then each of us will have two ideas. George Bernard Shaw Taken from CERN Global NetworkAmb la col·laboració:
