Approximately 1,000 physics and chemistry researchers and engineers from famous international centers will come annually to the town of Magurele, to work at the ELI-NP (Extreme Light Infrastructure – Nuclear Physics ) laboratory, to be built at the back of the nuclear reactor in this locality. ”Investments in civil engineering will bring multiple benefits to the government, investors, civil society and town residents. I encourage and back all the projects that can contribute to Magurele town and community development”, Narcis Constantin, deputy mayor of Magurele, was quoted as saying in a press release remitted to Agerpres on Tuesday. According to the source, a residential complex raised by a group of British investors opened in Magurele. In half a year, British investors have raised ten blocks of flats in order to offer housing at reasonable prices to scientists working at the Institute of Earth Physics in Magurele and for those who will be hired to carry out studies using the most powerful laser in the world. In the complex developed by British investors a studio is costing EUR 20,000, and a four-room apartment does not exceed EUR 70,000 , the first buyers acquiring their new homes ever since the inauguration of the complex. Overall, the investment at Magurele will be EUR 293 M, money coming from structural funds. Magurele Laboratory is to start operations in 2017, at the same time with the other two laboratories, in the Czech Republic and Hungary.
