„We support research activities in Slovakia / Project is co-funded by European Regional Development Fund“

Institute for Inorganic Chemistry, Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava 
with partners – University of Alexander Dubček in Trenčín 
and Institute of Materials Research, Slovak Academy of Sciences in Košice

implement the project:

Centre of Excellence for Ceramics, Glass and Silicate Materials


Place of Realisation:                                     Trenčín and Košice Self-Governing Region
Realisation Dates:                                         9/2010 – 8/2013
Non-repayable grant:                                      3 976 900,20 EUR


Establishing of the Centre will considerably help to create conditions for providing international-wide centre focused on materials chemistry research. To fulfill european parameters there is a need to invest not only in equipment, but also in most advanced information technologies, which enable handling, back-up and protection of obtained data in real time and which will be available for all consortium members. Moreover  will IT  provide access to world-wide database and make the communication between consortium members  more effective.

The aim of the project is support of the best research-educational teams and theirs concentration into monothematic centres with defined aims how to implement research activities in conrete research field.   Combination of these teams in Centre of excellence for ceramics, glass and silicate materials expects important cooperation, which may eventuate in higher research quality, but first of all in research and development of new materials.
