Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche - Istituto Officina dei Materiali

IOM (Institute for Materials Manufacturing) is an institute of the National Research Council (CNR), the main Italian public research organisation. It promotes, coordinates and carries out fundamental and applied research activities in the field of physics of matter, through a wide network of research centres based at Italian Universities and at large international research laboratories.
The strong participation in the EU RTD initiatives, together with the involvement in the activities of other international organisations (ESF, EUPRO, EPS, EARMA, VAMAS, HFSP) has enabled the Institute to achieve a considerable level of Europeanization as regards the management methods chosen, the available resources, and the experimentation of advanced methodology of evaluation and assessment. IOM possesses adequate skills and capability in workshops and meetings organisation, in the management of technology transfer of advanced academic know-how to the industrial environment, in the training of young researchers, in the diffusion of scientific culture and results to the wide public. The Institute has also long experience in the co-ordination of activities at international facilities (namely synchrotrons and neutron sources, such as ESRF and ILL), in the promotion and support of the Italian community access, and in the development of advanced instrumentation for neutron and X-ray scattering. CNR-IOM has a network of Centres for Research and Developments in partnership with several Italian universities. It is a part of the Department of Materials and Devices (DMD) of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) of Italy, i.e. a public research institute monitored by the Italian ministry of research and university. TASC (, former National Laboratory of CNR-INFM, is now the headquarters of CNR-IOM with a mission of providing advanced instrumentation and methods for supporting experimental projects in nanoscience and material science for the Italian community of physics of matter. IOM operates laboratories and beamlines at Trieste and Grenoble. Over 150 scientists work at IOM.
