Soft, Small, and Smart: Design, Assembly, and Dynamics of Novel Nanoparticles for Novel Industrial
Applications

Objective

The proposed ITN (NanoS3) have assembled eight academic groups with complementary expertise in synthesis, modeling and characterization. They are joined by two full industrial partners active in the development of novel luminescent materials (LuminoChem), and in the home and personal care sectors (Procter and Gamble). Two associated partners will contribute to the work of our proposed network: BioTalentum is an SME in the field of stem-cell research and the Institute for Surface Chemistry (YKI) is a world-leading research institute in applied surface chemistry.
Our work will focus on three priority areas of research:

• 1: Organizing Soft Nanoparticles
• 2: Dynamics of Soft Nanoparticles
• 3: Soft Nanoparticles at Interfaces

These S&T objectives are combined with the ambitious objectives to train and promote qualified research project managers in the field of soft matter nanoscience, capable to work in research or industry together with experts in different disciplines and in different countries. We will accomplish our goal by training early stage researchers in a wide variety of modern bulk and surface techniques, as well as in modelling and synthetic methods. We will organize a series of tutorial courses on specialized topics, organize network workshops, and implement secondments and visits. To develop the complementary skills needed to start a successful career either in academia or in R&D we will organize trainings in e.g. Project management, Proposal writing, Presentation skills, IP and patent rights and Innovation.
