On May 14, 2012

IZEST and the INRS sign an MoU


On Monday, May 14th, the founders of the IZEST (International Zetta-Exawatt Science and Technology) platform signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Canada-based INRS university, which boasts one of the most important laboratories in the high-powered lasers field. On the scientific front, IZEST will unite itself with scientific theorists and experimentalists who seek to explore new territory in high-energy fundamental physics. On the technological front, the production of these extreme forces will bring about a revolution in laser technology as well as in many other fields: medicine, materials science and energy, to name a few.
