Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The research activity of the Gnm3 Group focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of advanced materials with unique properties, suitable for widespread innovative engineering applications. We seek for new types of materials, whose microstructure can be precisely controlled at the nanoscale level, leading to enhanced mechanical, magnetic, optical, thermal and anti-corrosion performances. The investigated systems include nanoparticles, nanowires, lithographed micro- and nano-objects, mesoporous and nanoporous structures, electrodeposited thin films, bulk metallic glasses and bulk nanocomposite materials. Our research is funded both from private contracts with industries, as well as from public grants, either national or European (Horizon 2020).

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 2 - Zero Hunger
  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
  • SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • SDG 9 - Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
  • SDG 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production
  • SDG 14 - Life Below Water
