Project: EU project

Project Details


The overall aim of the project is to support the growth of the NOMATEN Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Multifunctional Materials for Industrial and Medical Applications, which was established in Poland in September 2018 and has already secured €37M of funding from the national authorities. The NOMATEN CoE is a partnership between the National Centre for Nuclear Research of Poland and two international partners: the CEA French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd. The NOMATEN team has a long-term experience in materials science research for the front-line nuclear sector and a unique pool of nuclear research infrastructure. They will be used in the CoE to translate cutting-edge knowledge from nuclear sector to the general industry and healthcare. The success and long-term sustainability of the NOMATEN CoE will be based on: - Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda focused on two interdisciplinary topics: (i) novel materials resistant to harsh environments and (ii) novel radiopharmaceuticals for medical applications, which both are aligned with the Smart Specialization of Poland and address strategic priorities of the EU. - Organization structure positioning the CoE as a “game changing” research entity in Poland with truly international approach and innovative governance and management principles based on the best practices of international partners. - Customer-centric business model making the CoE a focal point for collaboration between the research community, industry and government and ensuring its financial viability. Through generation, application and dissemination of breakthrough research and innovation outputs as well as training the next generation of experts, the NOMATEN CoE will improve Poland’s scientific excellence, capabilities and competitiveness, advance its research and innovation culture, and provide long-term opportunities for economic development and societal improvements in Poland and EU.
