Manufacturing and applications of nanostructured materials

The aim of the project is to carry out research in nanotechnology and to encourage researchers to take up jobs in the European nanotechnology industry. The research projects cover green energy-generating nanomaterials for solar cells and batteries, the organization and characterization of nanostructure, and lightweight/ longer life nanostructured materials for improving energy efficiency.

A network of universities, research institutes and companies from across Europe has been set up that will carry out the integrated research and training programme. The project is employing a multidisciplinary approach encompassing chemistry, physics, instrumentation, computational modelling, engineering and product design. GTS is providing valuable technical support, novel glass materials and mini-secondments for a number of the projects within this programme.
