|Research Activities & Structures|
INFM is presently part of the National Research Council (CNR).
INFM activities are carried out at research structures located in different seats in Italy.
- Research and Development Centres (CRS)
- National Laboratories (LN)
- Regional Laboratories (LR)
- The Operative Group in Grenoble (OGG)
All INFM research structures are directed by relevant scientists active in each field, who identify and evaluate scientific strategies for each structure, often in cooperation with Scientific Boards composed by international experts. The Institute performs periodically a self-assessment and scientific planning of its scientific structures in synergy with CNR evaluation initiatives.
Pursuant to its scientific objectives, INFM participates in and uses large research infrastructures for advanced studies on microscopic properties of matter, particularly by developing specific activities and projects at national and international facilities for synchrotron radiaton, neutron spectroscopy and high power computing.
Such activities are developed in close synergy with the scientific community of universities and other research institution, and with CNISM in particular.
INFM is involved in scientific dissemination initiatives aimed at attracting students into scientific studies and raising public awareness on the topics of science and innovation through the realization of interactive exhibitions and multimedia products.
INFM structures are managed by active scientists who collectively participate in the coordination of its activities. Prof. Elisa Molinari is presently Director of INFM.
Research activities are articulated in projects and “job orders” .
