Centexbel is a Belgian textile research centre that offers activities around Research & Development and Services (testing included) throughout its regional offices. It's nanotechnology activities focuss on nanoscale modifications of textile surfaces by means of atmospheric plasma treatment; nano coatings; and the incorporation of nano additives in fibres and coatings; and electro-spinning for the production of nano fibres
CoRI is a private institute created in 1957 as a non profit organization in order to stimulate scientific and technological development in the coatings industry. The aim is to extend basic knowledge on essential properties of organic coatings such as durability, rheology, corrosion protection, colour, adhesion. The objective is to assist enterprises in their individual research and development efforts in new technologies such as powder coating, solventless paints, waterborne paints, radcure.
Flamac's objective is to become a competence centre in 'High Throughput Methodologies' to support research for the materials industry. Research includes Synthesis and characterization of submicron metal-oxide coatings via chemical vapor deposition.
IMEC (Interuniversity MicroElectronics Centre) is Europe's leading independent research center in the field of micro- and nanoelectronics, nanotechnology, enabling design methods and technologies for ICT systems. Its research focuses on the next generations of chips and systems, and on the enabling technologies for ambient intelligence.
