Industrial collaborations

CATMAT is available for researches in partnership with companies in order to collaborate on projects of common interest. In this way, companies can have access to the knowledge and skills of the CATMAT researchers, laboratories and research facilities.
The partnership can be developed through:

  • Research projects;
  • Funding of research grants, doctoral scholarships on selected topics;
  • An industrial doctorate that allows companies to train, through a PhD program on a selected topic, their employees already engaged in highly qualified activities.

CATMAT has been already involved in many collaborations with industrial partners, such as Evonik, Casale, MTS, TEXA, Unired, H.D.R., Italcementi.

Our thesis proposals

All CATMAT thesis projects involve the design of innovative materials, their characterisation and their use for desired applications. Some topics:

  • Formulation of highly performant cosmetics from natural raw materials
  • Formulation of innovative materials for drug delivery systems
  • Formulation of inexpensive, innovative multifunctional materials to be used in green building industry
  • How to store sunlight? Photocatalysis turns CO2 and bio-alcohols into solar fuels
  • Energy relies on hydrogen: how to obtain it by renewable sustainable sources?
  • Waste to wheel (w2w): how to turn biomass into chemicals and fuels? Development of process to upgrade lignocellulosis wastes
  • Formulation of multifunctional materials for Cultural Heritage
  • Formulation of innovative coatings for roman frescos (in collaboration with IIT) 
  • Synthesis of innovative materials for applications in the traditional venician "marmorino"
