During the last decade Universidad TÈcnica Federico Santa MarÌa (UTFSM) successfully took the leading role in developing experimental particle physics in Chile. During that period a solid team of experimental physicists has been formed.

Our group is actively participating in several international collaborative projects including the ATLAS in CERN, MINERvA in Fermilab and CLAS/CLAS12 as well as GlueX in Jefferson Lab.
Apart from active scientific research our group has successfully developed several hardware and software related projects in close collaboration with colleagues from the areas of mechanical, electronic and informatics engineering from our university as well as from other Chilean and foreign universities.
At the same time, we succeeded in creating a multifunctional laboratory and computational facilities mainly in the base of Centro Cientifico Tecnologico de ValparaÌso (CCTVal), a research center in UTFSM.
In the presentation I will focus mainly on CCTVal's participation to JLab's scientific program.
