Since 1972 the University of Calabria has been structuring a strong research system also installing cutting-edge laboratories in areas of key enabling technologies. Physics is contributing with a relevant effort, involving also other hard sciences and engineering, towards solutions in fields like technological platforms for biomedical applications, cultural heritage and environment. The last 2007--2013 PON program allowed to build STAR, the Southern Europe Thomson Back-Scattering Source for Applied Research, a facility with National and European ambitions. STAR is organized in three progressive levels: the x-ray source, five highly specialized laboratories for matter physics and technology, a network of university departmental laboratories. All together this defines a technological pole of strategic interest for the Italian scientific community.
