Acronym: Pro-NanoEnviCz II

Realization time: 1. 1. 2020 - 31. 12. 2022 (36 months)


This project directly linked to the program of the existing research infrastructure NanoEnviCz and complements it in the area of critically missing instrumentation and expertise. The acquisition of new instrumental techniques will strengthen the research potential of the infrastructure and lead to the successful achievement of the scientific objectives in the field of synthesis, complex characterization, tuning the functional properties and exploring the application potential of nanomaterials for environmental applications as well as the determination of their potential hazard.

The European Union financially supports this project.
