1 Silvia Licoccia Università di Roma Tor Vergata licoccia@uniroma2.it www.centronast.it BIOSYSTEMS, ENERGY, AND CULTURAL HERITAGE: MATERIALS ENHANCEMENT FOR TECHNOLOGICAL APPLICATION Rome, July 3 rd, 2013 Research & Training @ the NAST Center

2 Participants Ca. 50 from Roma Tor Vergata Departments Ca. 65 from other Italian Universities and research centers Objectives: NAST combines basic science with application-orientated research and development of innovative instrumentation NAST aims to be an interdisciplinary research and training centre where biologists, chemists, engineers, physicians, and physicists work together to investigate scientific issues at the nanoscale. This knowledge is exploited to develop innovative materials and methodological tools, nanoelectronic and photonic devices and instrumentations.
