The president of Catalonia visited the Barcelona Synchrotron Park
“A country structure”: Barcelona Synchrotron Park director Pere Solà used that phrase to summarize the role of the park to the president of Catalonia Quim Torra during his visit on September 18.

The director explained the three missions of the Park: hosting innovative companies, building a new neighbourhood and protecting biodiversity. He particularly mentioned the future 30,000 jobs that will be generated, the 5,700 apartments (social protection floor for 47% of them) and the green corridor.

Regarding the new urban master plan about to enter the public information phase, Pere Solà pointed out, among other aspects, the future public transportation network and the original action plan in urban planning and health.

The president could have an accurate picture of this reality travelling by bus the 400 hectares of the park. He concluded his visit at Alba synchrotron where director Caterina Biscari took him to discover this iconic infrastructure, the largest science facility in the Iberian Peninsula.

At the end of the visit, the President announced that the government will invest a total of 25 million euros in the Alba Synchrotron: 20 to install four new beam lines that will be operational between 2020 and 2023, and 5 million euros to build the Advanced Microscopy Center.
