Paper Abstract

Industry is a bridge which links scientific thought with its concrete possibility to realize something operative and functional. In the last fifteen years, Astronomy has undergone a total revolution: telescopes are getting bigger and bigger and even more efficient. Enclosures are being more and more integrated into scientific performances. From NTT to VLT, from LBT to ALMA, to VST and to VISTA: there is always an industrial contribution in the development of the biggest astronomic projects. A comparison between scientific and technological research, a synergy that leads to the future.
