Research and Enterprise

Following the mission of Materials Science, the Department pursued the development of scientific, technological and training relationships with local industries, extending over the years the interchange with the world of industrial manufacturing beyond national borders. The Department also takes part in initiatives to exploit the results of research, as witnessed over the years by the foundation of 4 spin-offs (companies initiated by university staff) as well as in the filing of 68 national and international patents.

As a service center, the Department of Materials Science provides companies and individuals with analytical, measurement and characterization services (third-party activities).
