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.

Joint international laboratory projects call results. Cemistry and materials technology Sector (for the years 2020-2022)

Institutional area

The Joint lab project is based on a proposal of research activity to be jointly carried out by Italian and Foreign researchers who intend to share their skills as well as their research facilities to create a Joint Lab - a meeting place, both physical and virtual, having new, improved characteristics if compared to the original single structures of affiliation. 
The two selected proposals in the sector chemistry and materials technology are:​ Nicola Armaroli (Cnr-Isof) in collaboration with Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique - Cnrs (France) and Michele Saviano (Cnr-Ic) in collaboration with Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique - Cnrs (France)

Cnr S&T Foresight

Institutional area

In nature, living organisms consist of a limited number of primary components and chemical bonds, organized in complex systems capable to adapt to diversified environmental conditions. Materials are very rarely adaptable, and often require a large number of components to achieve high performances in specific functions. See more...

Match, materials common house

Institutional area

Match is a coordination and support action to promote the creation of strong, sustainable, inclusive network where any european materials players as Industry, research and academia feels comfortable and gains real value for its interest, and the integration of concerted and strategic actions responding to national and european challenges in the materials field

Freecats project. Cleantech project on waste-water decontamination

Institutional area

Critical Raw Material-free CATalystS (FREECATS) Network of Infrastructure (NoI), an innovation project supported by EIT RawMaterials, joined forces to help Bracco Imaging SpA (Bracco) facing these challenges, under the leadership of the Institute of science and molecular technology of the National research council (Cnr-Istm)

Technology transfer office

Institutional area

Technology transfer represents the Cnr’s second mission, after the scientific research. Cnr-TTO is responsible for all the activities related to TT, namely protection of research results, IPR management and exploitation, promotion and support for spin-off creation, marketing and promotion of research results
