Introduction

The main objective of the school is to prepare researchers capable of designing, building and characterizing nanomaterials and nanostructured materials (NMS), tools and devices that meet the growing applicative needs, to make the industrial production more effective, affordable and sustainable and to meet the growing needs of our society, promoting its progress. The school is meant for graduates in physics, chemistry, engineering, biology, biotechnology, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and pharmaceutical technology who aim at acquiring a high level of interdisciplinary preparation through specific courses and seminars covering also fields different from their own specific areas and carry out research projects in the framework of the collaborations with (inter)national research institutions and industries established by teachers and tutors of the school.

The main objectives of the research activities can be summarized as follows:

  1. Synthesis and engineering of nanomaterials and NSM
  2. Development of new techniques for the study, manipulation, and visualization of nanomaterials and NSM at the nanoscale
  3. Study of the relation between structure and properties of materials
  4. Multiscale molecular modeling of nanomaterials and NSM and phenomena of interest with computational simulation techniques and theoretical studies of NSM with ab initio methods
  5. Development of sensors for the detection of bio-molecules or compounds at a very low concentrations
  6. Application of nanotechnology, nanomaterials, and NSM for research in the energy sector
  7. Application of nanotechnology in the biological, pharmaceutical, and medical sectors
