The National Institute of Materials Physics in collaboration with the Institute of Space Science and the extraordinary support of the “Romano-American Group RoGeniX- Integrated platform for innovation and entrepreneurship” is organizing the “Interdisciplinary vocation of Life, Physics and Space...
Within the project "Centre for Research, Innovation and Technologies for New Materials, RITecC" NIMP will erect a modern building and will purchase equipments for three new laboratories complementing its present infrastructure. The main goal is to develop specific technologies for advanced materials, compatible with state of the art industrial processes. Thus, placing NIMP research in an attractive area for applications RITecC should enhance the cooperation with industries producing goods with high added value.
The center consists of two newly established and five modernized laboratories. As part of the project, 23 pieces of equipment worth over 100000 euro each were acquired and 24 new positions were created for highly qualified specialists (physicists, chemists, engineers).
Romania is a founding member of the Central European Research Infrastructure Consortium (CERIC) along with Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Serbia and Slovenia.
The specific scope of CERIC is to offer integrated service to external researchers, allowing them access to synchrotron light and other microscopic probes for advanced materials preparation and characterization in the fields of Materials Sciences, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Cultural Heritage, Enviroment and Life Sciences.
The mission of CERIC is to bring the integrated service to a top-level quality, thus contributing to the attractiveness of the European Research Area and stimulating a beneficial impact on the scientific and economic development of the entire region.
Romania is represented in the consortium by the National Institute of Materials Physics who offers open access to state-of-the-art scientific equipments such as the sub-Angstrom resolution analytical Transmission Electron Microscope (http://lab50.infim.ro) and the research center for advanced Electron Spin Resonance techniques (http://cetresav.infim.ro).
