Physical sciences and technologies of matter

The Cnr Department of Physical science and material technologies coordinates the physical-material area. The fundamental thematic research areas are the development of nano-structures based on semiconductors, oxides, organic and magnetic materials, superconductors and hybrids, laser and photonic systems, sensors and devices with microelectronics applications, energy, health care and ict; advances instrumentation and new methods of investigation in order to extend the knowledge regarding the science of soft condensed material, the complex material and the biological systems at all levels.

In the quantum science and technology field, the technologies that concern the manipulation and transfer of information have a great part, having the ultimate aim of contributing to the realization of devices for the data processing, with unmatchable characteristics, if compared to the classical systems.

1st International Workshop on Social Media Analytics for Healthcare (SMA4H)

Event 03/12/2018

Held in conjunction with IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence 2018 (WI’18) The fast expansion of social media in the last few years is making available an enormous and continuous stream of user-generated contents containing invaluable information that can be used to understand, in near real time, human life dynamics. These massive quantities of data could support a wide range of medical and healthcare applications, including among others clinical trials and decision support, disease surveillance, personalized medicines and population health management

Pier Giorgio Merli (S)TEM School 2018

Event from 19/11/2018 to 23/11/2018

The 7th edition of the “Pier Giorgio Merli” Transmission Electron Microscopy School, jointly organised by SISM and CNR-IMM, in two full weeks, will provide students and researchers with a qualified introduction to TEM and STEM techniques for materials science

Horizon 2020

Institutional

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. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market

Graphene Factory

Institutional

Graphene Factory is a Cnr portal focused on graphene and two-dimensional materials research. The aim is to promote and support this research throughout the CNR network, offering information and services to the scientific community, industrial partners and citizens
