Strengthening University of Nova Gorica Research Potential in Environmental Sciences and Novel Nanomaterials


The SUNGREEN project seeks to reinforce the University of Nova Gorica, strengthening its innovative approach for research and development of new knowledge in environmental science and novel nano-structured materials. The reinforcement will be realized through establishment of strategic partnerships with top European R&D centres, recruitment of experienced researchers, acquisition of state-of-the-art research infrastructure, enhancement of UNG visibility and its collaboration with different stakeholders in the region. Through the implementation of the project, UNG will reach its full potential for research and technological innovation and will become one of the leading European research centres in the field environmental sciences and nano-materials. Excellent environmental science reputation of UNG is the result of integration of physics, chemistry, biology material science and computational science disciplines. Main objective of the project is strengthening of the research potential of UNG that needs new knowledge and research equipment. Project will enhance the capacity of UNG to successfully participate in research activities at EU level. The objective will be achieved through networking with other European world class research players, upgrading of relevant RTD infrastructure, recruitment of experienced researchers as well as through dynamic contribution to the regional and European sustainable socio-economic development through networking and dissemination activities.
Project will pave paths for industrial uptake of new environmental technologies and will contribute to knowledge based economy and last but not least to cleaner environment. Transfer of know how will enable industries in the region at European level to produce innovative new products with high added value. Through project implementation, UNG will establish partnerships that will enable economically sustainable research both alone and in collaboration with network of partnering organizations.
