Instrumental core research facilities

The Instrumental Core Research Facilities provide all ICN2 researchers with an array of specialised equipment, technologies and services efficiently operated by highly-qualified staff. This enables them to achieve ambitious research goals cost-effectively. From essential routine support though to more advanced technical and consulting services, these core facilities enable and enhance the important research carried out at the institute on a daily basis.
