The mission of the Portugese Center for Research in Ceramics and Composite Materials (Ciceco) is to develop the scientific and technological knowledge necessary for the innovative production and transformation of ceramics and composite materials. Research areas include nanostructured materials.
INL- International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory is the first, and so far the only one, fully international research organization in Europe in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. It has an international legal framework similar to the few international laboratories in other areas located in Europe like CERN - European Organization for Nuclear Research at Geneva, ESO - European Southern Observatory, EMBL - European Molecular Biology Laboratory, ESRF - European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. The new laboratory is being established by Portugal and Spain, but in the future will be open to the membership of other countries of Europe and other regions of the world.
University of Madeira andCentro de Quimica da Madeira, Madeira Island, Portugal, invite applicants with a Bachelor or a Master degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Life Sciences, Materials, Physics or related sciences/engineering courses to apply to our new two years Master Programme in Nanochemistry and Nanomaterials.
The University of Aveiro, particularly acknowledged for its research concerning the synthesis, properties and applications of nanomaterials, offers a program of study leading to the Ph.D. degree in Nanosciences and Nanotechnology. In its first stage, students are introduced to contemporary topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology, comprising several courses in the field and thus initiating a cross-disciplinary approach to research and learning. Different research units at the University contribute actively to this stage. Students admitted to the second stage of the doctoral program follow to N&N activities leading to the elaboration of a doctorate thesis. The courses are taught in English.
