Project description
Need for new functional materials and nanomaterials in industry increases. This ERA-NET.RUS SILICAMPS project is an interdisciplinary effort of four partners: University of Crete, Greece; Limnological Institute (SB-RAS), Russia; Dresden University of Technology, Germany; and University of Helsinki, Finland. Funding for the Finnish team has come from the Academy of Finland (no. 264990). We have prepared bioinspired composites by condensation of silicic acid in presence of water-soluble polycations. This 2-years project also served for the knowledge exchange and education. Results of the Finnish partner were reported in 7 scientific papers and presented at 3 international meetings. These results became basis for one PhD Thesis and one MSc Thesis.
