Research partnerships

Joint Labs

The Department has signed into a series of agreements for the creation of joint laboratories with other foreign institutions, in which researchers from the Department and foreign researchers share, in addition to their skills, the own research structures displaying new characteristics compared to the two proposing institutes.

In this context, the Department established the joint QUCAT Laboratory (Quantum Nanostructure Photo-Catalysis) with the South China Normal University (SCNU) of Guanzhou (China) for the study of advanced materials, through the departmental laboratory for fabrication and study of semiconductor quantum nanostructures (EpiLab).

Funded projects

The quality of departmental research is witnessed by a dense network of international collaborations and by the ability to attract resources for research through international competitive projects. The active international funded projects are more than ten.
