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.
The III International Triple Helix Summit will be held in Bologna (Italy) on 24th - 26th November 2020 and will focus on the theme 'Designing globally connected regional innovation ecosystems: overcoming barriers and opening pathways'.
New technological trends have significantly accelerated changes in the economy and society at a pace we have never experienced so far.

A new study of the Istituto Officina dei Materiali (Iom) of the National Research Council of Italy, in association with International School for Advanced Studies (Siss) sheds light on how the spliceosome works. It is a complex cellular system, composed of proteins and RNA, responsible for a “cutting and sewing” process with which protein synthesis is carried out. Defects in its functioning are involved in more than 200 diseases. The study has recently been published on the Journal of the American Chemical Society, which also dedicated the cover to it
