Výzkumná Infrastruktura (VI) SPL-MSB je českou laboratoří v evropské výzkumné infrastruktuře CERIC-ERIC. Sestává ze dvou částí, Optické dráhy pro vědu o materiálech (MSB) na synchrotronu Elettra v Terstu a laboratoře fyziky povrchů (SPL) v Praze. Klíčovým cílem projektu je modernizovat VI a umožnit tím vysokou kvalitu výzkumu zaměřeného na studium nových typů katalyzátorů pro elektrokatalytickou redukci kyslíku, oxidaci vodíku a redukci toxických reaktivních forem kyslíku.
