Center of Nanomaterials Research
The Center of Nanomaterials Research (CNR) at IKBFU is an interdisciplinary scientific project devoted to the theoretical design of new functional nanomaterials, their production and characterization. The key objective is to face the future technological challenges and ensure long-term competitiveness and international visibility of the IKBFU as well as of the whole Kaliningrad region in both fundamental and applied research; it is also to ensure the technology transfer to industrial manifacturing in the field of Nanotechnology. This will require coordination of all activities at IKBFU in the field of nanoscience-related research and education, and the development of the internationally recognized Nano Science competencies. The Center practices interdisciplinarity, and its research programme connects the activity on materials research carried out by the Reference Centers “Functional magnetic materials” and “Living systems”, by the Institutes of “Physical and Mathematical Sciences and Information Technologies” and “Biology and Chemistry”.
The CNR coordinates and manages the Shared Experimental Facilities Center. These facilities include the laboratories at the “Fabrika” and also other local (IKBFU), regional (Kaliningrad) and international contractual facilities in need of support and consultation in the field of nanotechnology research.
