Materials in Extreme Environments
MATTER - the Centre of MATerials in Extreme enviRonments
The overall objective of the MATTER project is to hire a team of excellent researchers to facilitate structural changes in University of Tartu by establishing an integrated Centre of Materials in Extreme Environments.
The concept pursued with ERA CHAIR is for UT to become the leading European Centre of research of Materials in Extreme Environments and increase its capacities to deliver fundamental, as well as applied research focusing on sustainable nano-fabrication, real-time nano-characterization and materials modeling to induce cutting edge technology transfer from research environment to industry.
MATTER focuses on nanoscale material behaviour in complex environments and upscaling of control of nanomaterial for interdisciplinary and widespread use. MATTER enables breakthrough research in areas such as biomedical applications (nano-medicine, drug delivery, regenerative medicine), renewable energy sources, high electric field applications, high power microwave and radar equipment, materials research, ICT and electronics applications, MEMS & NEMS etc.
