The Institute has always proceeded with a large International Mobility among scientist of many different Institutions abroad. The Institute is having Guest Professors (Official from UPM) from Institutions so prestigious as the Paul Scherrer Institute/Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne, Soreq Nuclear Center and Institute of Laser Engineering (ILE) of the University of Osaka, and certainly Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. It will be a STRATEGIC LINE also to have at the Institute shorter period of time of scientist from other Universities as presently from Ecole Polytechnique Paris and Laboratoire d'Optique Aplique (LOA) France or University Milano.
The continuation of the stays long and short time of researchers abroad is also a Strategic Line. Scientists are working in Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. Short stays collaboration such as those in this year at Ecole Polytechnique and Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne, and University of Reno/Nevada will continue.
The Institute will follow to exploit the line of International Programs offered by the Autonomous Government and the Ministry related to Science of Science in both through Bilateral Collaboration and in the frame of Specific Program presently running such as ACI-PROMOCIONA Internationalization. The Institute has been successful to obtain funding from those programs thanks to its participation in International Research Project such as HiPER, and it will follow in that Strategic Line.
The participation in International Project such as NIF, HiPER, LIFT in Inertial Fusion; ITER or IFMIF in magnetic and Broader Approaches will be in the main Strategic line, same than the collaboration (already existing) in Project as ESS- Bilbao.
The presentation of proposal to European Forum such as Marie Curie, SPIRIT, LASERLAB Programs, and use of facilities such as ILL Grenoble, Jannus in France, TIARA in Japan, Rossendorf Irradiation Facilities, and LULI in France will be maintained, in addition with the present collaboration to be started with personnel for this period of time at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Central Laser Facility).
