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.
Metabolic health also requires a good memory. A study coordinated by the Institute of biomolecular chemistry of the Cnr describes a functional alteration of the neuronal circuit that regulates episodic memory in a mouse model of obese subjects. This circuit links neurogenesis during obesity and can influence decision-making processes, including those related to food choices, from an early age. The study is published in Nature Communications
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
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
