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 mission of cluster Nanomedic is to support R&D in the area of nanomaterials and biotechnology, to enhance the ability to compete, innovative activities and the export of companies, universities and academic institutions.
The main subjects of the scientific activity of the Centre comprise the complex study of unique photocatalytic properties of nanocrystalline photoactive materials (mostly titanium dioxide) and research of their practical utilisation in the field of self-cleaning, anti-bacterial coatings, photocatalytic purification of water, air and contaminated soil, organic synthesis and solar energy conversion.
Nanotechnology Centre (CNT) as a successor of Institute of Materials Chemistry (IMACH) was established 2/1/2007. Establishment of the CNT reflects the changes in research and development activities of the IMACH which became strongly focused on the different fields of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology. Establishment of the CNT reflects also accreditation and start of the new study program Nanotechnology at our University.
