The Institute of Chemical Engineering ICE-HT conducts fundamental and technological research focused on cutting-edge areas of science, specific needs of industry and the environment. The R&D activities of the Institute are concentrated along three major Areas of Research (RA):
RA1: Nanotechnology / New Materials
RA2: Energy / Environment
RA3: Biosciences / Biotechnology
The RAs are supported by research groups with advanced expertise in state-of-the-art scientific and technological fields. Furthermore, ICE-HT provides a wide spectrum of technical services (instrumental analysis of chemical composition and physicochemical properties, quality assessment, machine and electronics shops, etc.).
Through its intensive and multifaceted R&D activities FORTH/ICE-HT has developed close links of collaboration with hundreds of Greek and foreign industrial enterprises, creating for them substantial results, such as improved production processes and new competitive products. Beyond this, the Institute systematically contributes in the development of young researchers, who have acquired a solid basis in modern scientific and technological research fields, and who have gained personal and team experience in fruitful cooperation with industry.
