The University of Saskatchewan’s Canadian Light Source (CLS) and the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) have signed an MOU to facilitate their collaboration on synchrotron and accelerator science. The agreement aims to allow for technical and scientific collaboration that will advance agricultural research. The MOU focuses on two areas: a new program called the Maple Project, which will allow Sirius users access to CLS’s beamline, and enhancement of accelerator and machine development. “Together we will advance agricultural innovation in both our countries by expanding the applications of synchrotron technology in agricultural research– from soil and plants to foods and animals,” said CLS Chief Operating Officer Bill Matiko.
