The NanoMat Project is realized by Wroclaw Research Centre EIT+ in the frames of the European Funds for Regional Development (POIG, Sub-action 1.1.2). It involves interdisciplinary efforts aimed at manufacturing technologically advanced materials and developing nanotechnology for applications in electronics, photonics, power engineering, medicine, construction materials, polymer industry and other related fields. The goal of our research is to obtain materials featuring new or improved properties, develop technologies for their manufacturing and determine their potential in terms of applicability. Results obtained in the course of the project are patented and will be commercialized through technology licensing and spin-offs. Nanomat connects projects managers, experienced researchers, and specialists responsible for intellectual property protection and commercialization.

NanoMat program  it is over 20 research projects  within the following research areas:

  • Nanomaterials for photonics and biomedical applications.
  • Nanomaterials for optoelectronics and sensing applications.
  • Lasers and optical fiber amplifiers.
  • Microstructural polymer fiber optics.
  • Functional polymer materials.
  • SMART materials and nanocomposites.
  • Electromagnetic radiation detectors and converters for digital medical diagnostics and document and banknote security systems.
  • Intermetallic alloys absorbing hydrogen and permanent magnets based on lanthanides – development of magnetically hard nanocomposite materials based on domestic raw materials.
  • Materials and technologies for advanced energy conservation and storage systems.
    • Development of modern biodetection and cellular bioimaging methods with the use of luminescent nanotags
    • Biosystems for detection of microbiological hazards
      • Technologies associated with laser micromachining and their application.
      • Nanomaterials manufactured through sol-gel technology, intended for medical and sensory application.
      • Polymer and ceramic nanocomposites for electrotechnical application.

Seventeen patent applications were applied, national and international, within two years. We are in fourth place in terms of the number of patent applications amongst R+D institutions in Poland.
