Core facilities are centralized shared research infrastructures of Universities or Research Centers that provide access to tools, technologies, services, consultancy and other scientific activities, for a fee. They are mainly aimed at internal researchers of the relative institutions but are also open to external users thanks to a dedicated booking system and tariff.
