Smart materials, nanomaterials and nanotechnology
The industry of nanosystems and nanomaterials nowadays is one of the priority scientific areas. Nanotechnology appeared relatively recently, however, it is characterized by considerable development prospects. In recent years a great potential has been created in the field of research and development in a wide range of nanoindustry directions. Experts predict that the global market for nanotechnology in the next 10 years will exceed the electronics market by 20% and will twice exceed the medical market.
Thanks to the University scientists’ experience, a substantial material and technical foundation, and close cooperation with industry representatives in the implementation of R&D, ITMO University developments in the field of smart materials, nanomaterials and nanotechnologies have become competitive both in the domestic and international market.
