The current National Institute of Optics (INO) has been working for over eighty years in the Optics sector, in
the broadest definition of the same, and has updated its fields of activity in
line with the huge innovations that have characterized this sector over the
last century. The activities are divided into the following
programmes: pure and applied research, technological transfer, consultancy for
public institutions and businesses. These
are accompanied by SIT (Italian Calibration
Service) metrology services and testing, again for public institutions and businesses, and training activities.
