M. Santilli Foundation (http://santilli-foundation.org/news.html) in view of his scientific publications (see, e.g., http://www.santilli-foundation.org/docs/antimatter-detect-2014.pdf). He has been associated with TEC since 2014 as a Scientific Advisor and proved his value to the company with his skills in research and engineering, his ability to understand and use our radiation analysis software, and with his capability to document and elaborate data from various tests (http://www.santilli-foundation.org/docs/Simone-FINAL.pdf).

In his role as Vice President of Engineering, Eng. Beghella-Bartoli will have a major role in the design and manufacturing of our Neutron Source in our Division of Neutron Equipment.
