Particle and nuclear physics experiments and equipment development

Experiments and new technology development in geosciences

Implementing new technologies in microbiology

Mining or tunnelling equipment tests and product development

Digitalization of products and services, including autonomous machinery development, “virtual twin” design, sensor and VR/AR applications
