MultIfunctional Materials and composItes, photonicS and nanotechnology (IMIS2) (2014 - 2017)

The realization of the program will develop knowledge base in photonics, nanotechnology, innovative and advanced materials as well as enhance human resources and improve the competitiveness of the state economy according to the European Commission Key Enabling Technologies in the areas where Latvia possesses high scientific potential and demand of the economy.

The program is thematically structured in 4 projects:

  1. Photonics and materials for photonics;
  2. Nanomaterials and nanotechnology;
  3. Nanocomposite materials;
  4. Nanomaterials and nanotechnologies for medical applications.

In the implementation of the projects more than 150 scientists and more than 100 students will be involved. Within the frames of the program the students will elaborate their scientific and academic qualification works. As the results of the program more than 250 SCI reports in high-ranking scientific journals, around 200 presentations at international conferences and around 100 interactive activities including popular science publications, seminars, exhibitions are expected.
