LABEC, the Laboratory of nuclear techniques for Environment and Cultural Heritage, is a high-qualified centre for the development of new technologies based on small particle accelerators and ionizing radiations, and for their applications in environmental contexts and in heritage science. The laboratory is hosted at the Florence unit of INFN (National Institute of Nuclear Physics) and it is jointly managed by INFN and the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Florence.
