Mission statement

The overall objective of the Centre for Functional and Surface-functionalized glass is to become an internationally recognized research institute aiming to master its expertise within the following activities:

Basic/fundamental research: conduct cutting edge research in the area of glass with special functional properties (luminescence, electric, magnetic, catalytic, sorption), and functionalization of conventional glass with the aim to modify mentioned characteristics and add new functionalities,
Training and applied research: tap into a local know-how in development of the competitive advantage within the region by training of skilled research personnel and by actively pursuing opportunities to establish partnerships with regional and European glass industries in order to facilitate efficient knowledge transfer and conversion of research into successful commercial applications,
International networking: establish creative international environment and maintain close ties with FunGlass H2020 project partners from leading EU science institutes in the field.

The overall objective of the project is the upgrade of the existing Centre of excellence for ceramics, glass and silicate materials (CEKSiM) in Trenčín, Slovakia, to an internationally recognized Centre for Functional and Surface-functionalized glasses (FunGLASS). Key activities of the planned Centre can be summarized as follows:

– (basic/fundamental research) to conduct cutting edge research in the area of glasses with special functional properties (luminescence, electric, magnetic, catalytic, sorption), and to functionalization of conventional glasses with the aim of modification of the mentioned properties, and adding new functionalities,

– (training and applied research) to tap into a local know-how in development of the competitive advantage of the region by training of skilled research personnel and by actively pursuing opportunities to establish partnership with regional and European glass industries in order to facilitate efficient knowledge transfer and successful conversion of research into commercial applications,

– (international networking) to form creative international environment and close ties with project partners from leading institutes in the field in EU.
