Research in nanotechnology has two main objectives:

  • Study and development of new nanocomposite materials, which can give the best mechanical, electrical or physical properties to improve product performance
  • Use of nanoscale to manufacture sensors and devices with features not yet available on the market up to date


In the field of bio-technologies, important steps have been taken to make available micro devices that integrate technologies such as micro-fluidics and nanotechnologies.

The main fields of research include:

  • New nanocomposite materials and nanodevices for sensors
  • Lab on chip and systems for diagnostic
  • Lab on chip and systems for regenerative medicine
