The Nanobioengineering Research Laboratory, a collaboration between the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), is a multidisciplinary centre belonging to the Catalan Bioengineering Institute (IBEC) in which joint research on the applications of nanotecnology to biology and biomedicine is carried out.
The Nanotechnology Platform at the Parc Científic de Barcelona provides researchers with the facilities required for Nanotechnology research projects, particularly in Nanobioengineering. The platform is a 10000 /100 class cleanroom appropriately equipped with the state-of-the-art equipment for the manufacture of micro and nanostructures and their subsequent study and characterization.
CTC manages and performs innovative R&D projects in the fields of Aerospace, Automotive, and Energy (Nuclear and Renewable), in addition to a technological line of Advanced Materials (which is working in different reasearch lines about nanomaterials: Polymeric nanocomposites and graphene synthesis), while incorporating environmental criteria to assess the impact on the environment.
TEKNIKER is a technological center set up as a private not-for-profit foundation to help the industrial sector to increase its innovative capacity by means of generating and applying technology and knowledge in order to be more competitive. Expertise includes nanoimprint lithography for fabric engineering, vapor-phase deposition coatings, and nanostructuring of coatings.
