National Facilities

Human Technopole National Facilities offer open access to cutting edge technologies in the field of genomics, genome engineering and disease modelling, imaging, structural biology and data handling and analysis.

The mission of HT National Facilities (NFs) is to support the national community through:

  • access to cutting edge technologies and know how;
  • training programs;
  • technology/ method development projects;

with the final aim of increasing the impact of Italian research at international level.

The access of external Users affiliated to Universities, Istituti di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico (IRCCS), and Public Research Entities will be supported by open calls for access. Access is granted based on the principles of scientific excellence, with the aim of supporting high-quality research. The quality of the submitted requests is evaluated and approved by an independent panel of experts, the Standing Independent Evaluation Committee, that also defines the Access Management Plan. More information on the Access Management Plan will be shared over the next few weeks.
