Chemical sciences and materials technology

These research topics -although pertaining to many Cnr research groups  and Institutes- find a systematic exploitation in the Cnr Department of chemical science and materials technology (Dsctm).

Research topics range from sustainable chemistry to advanced materials and key enabling technologies, as well as nanomedicine. A great importance has also the area of biotechnologies and bio-materials, that situates the Department in an advanced position in the 'living technologies' field, particularly for the development of nanotechnologies bottom-up with an high excellence impact in flexible electronic and optoelectronics, hydrogen technology and fuel cells, sustainable processes with high efficiency and new generation manufacturing.

Molecular Machines days

Event from 21/11/2018 to 22/11/2018

An extraordinary journey in the company of four outstanding scientists: the 2016 Nobel Prizes in chemistry Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart and Ben L. Feringa, and the professor emeritus of the Alma Mater Vincenzo Balzani. The University of Bologna, in collaboration with the National research council, presents a series of events to discover molecular machines: sophisticated devices with dimensions of one billionth of a meter that many will soon be at the center of a new industrial revolution

Horizon 2020

Institutional area

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract.
