The Surface Engineering and Nanotechnology Institute (SENTi) is a world-leading Centre of excellence for innovative research into atomistic and particulate based manufacturing techniques for the production of protective and active surface coating systems with a mission to transform innovative manufacturing research into engineered products. The Institute is led by Professor John Nicholls.
The VNLab is a team of dedicated computational and theoretical physicists, chemists and materials scientists who investigate a range of fundamental properties of nanostructures under different thermochemical conditions.
The research undertaken by the group ranges from government-funded fundamental research to confidential one-on-one industrial projects. The NRI is also part of the West Australian Nanochemistry Institute (WANRI) that comprises groups from Curtin University, Murdoch University and the University of Western Australia.
The Czech Nanotechnology Cluster aims to build a strong group of closely cooperating nanoproduct suppliers, businesses using nanotechnologies in their products and research and educational institutes operating in this sphere.
The goal of the organization is to better represent, both nationally and internationally, the strengths and capabilities of Czech companies in business, research, and education. CeskoJe Nano seeks to build on the already auspicious foundation that Czech nanotechnology achievements hold today as one of the leading international locations for innovation and strives to create a stronger awareness of these abilities while at the same time forging new links and opening new opportunities for cooperation between commercial and research sectors.
