Collaborative Equipment Network for Teaching and Research (CENTR)

The Collaborative Equipment Network for Teaching and Research (CENTR) at the BSB facilitates access to shared equipment providing both scheduling and invoicing services. CENTR is powered by FOM Networks and serves as a central scheduling hub for all major equipment and instrumentation in our core research facilities.
