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.

Italian national commission for Iupac

Institutional area

The International union of pure and applied chemistry (Iupac) was established in 1919 with the aim of promoting exchanges between chemists from all over the world, also through the creation of a common and standardized language. The National research council (Cnr) represents Italy in Iupac and it is configured as National adhering organization, Nao. The italian Cnr commission for Iupac, established for the first time in 2013, is appointed by the president of the Cnr to carry out the tasks of Nao

Foresight: from society to research

Institutional area

Foresight is a interdepartmental project of the National Research Council of Italy, aimed at elaborating coherent research strategies and addressing socially relevant problems related to environment, health, food, energy, security and transportation
