Advanced Materials for a Sustainable Future
Materials Science touches every aspect of human life, from renewable energy, to energetic efficiency, nanotechnology, health, construction, transportation, manufacturing processes, recycling and much, much more. With its help, we can protect the environment and ensure a brighter future for the generations to come.
This is why we aim to use innovative, enhanced materials and devices to boost the transition to greener technologies and contribute to a sustainable future.
In our community, we cover all aspects involved in the production and application of advanced materials: materials and devices design, fabrication, characterisation, testing, upscaling and life-cycle analysis, going from fundamental science to the real implementation in the industry. This allows for a strong component of research-, challenge-, project- and problem-based learning for students of the community.
