Cosylab, a leading technology company in Slovenia, has recently joined HEARTS. The project, which was launched just one year ago, involves already five European scientific, academic and industrial partners with extensive experience in the field of radiation effects and a strong interest in heavy-ion testing, in order to mimic the Cosmic Ray environment present in space for shielding, radiobiology and electronics applications.

Thanks to additional EU funding through the Hop-On programme, Cosylab will contribute to HEARTS by providing its expertise and experience in the field of control system protocols and user interface tools. The laboratory has a track record of working with international scientific institutes, research and fusion energy organisations, medical device manufacturers and other organisations and entities.

Miha Vitorovič, Cosylab Project Manager, said:

“Our engineers at Cosylab are truly excited to collaborate on the HEARTS project, which will enable the two main high-energy ion accelerator infrastructures in Europe to work as a unison solution for research and industrial access in the fields of radiation effects in shielding, radiobiology and electronics. It will be an excellent opportunity for us to combine our expertise from both the scientific accelerator and space domain and work on single-tool solutions for user-managing beam parameters and user-tracking of the experiment lifecycle across the facilities.”

Rubén García Alía, HEARTS Project Coordinator, said:

“We are delighted to welcome a new partner to extend the scope and impact of HEARTS in its pursue of improving the user experience both at the level of the single infrastructures as well as overall as a service. This has been made possible thanks to the new Hop-On Facility call offered by the European Commission.”
