The CENTRE OF TECHNOLOGY for the TRANSFER OF INNOVATION and the CHARACTERISATION OF NATURAL STONE MATERIALS will be operational by August 2014 thanks to the co-financing of the Tuscan Regional Government as part of the PAR FAS 2007-2013 benefits scheme.

The laboratory, with highly qualified personnel, will be equipped with specific, up-to-date technology for the characterisation of natural stone in accordance with the main international standards (EN and ASTM).

Upon request, companies may also be effectively supported in adjusting to the European Regulation on Construction Products (no. 305/2011), which requires CE marking.

The laboratory will also be used to support innovation and technology transfer activities already carried out by the IMM thanks to the strong relationship between business and research.
