A nano and biotech centre for Lower Silesia

A nano and biotech centre for Lower Silesia
Description

High-grade biotechnology and nanotechnology research is on its way to Lower Silesia in the form of a new centre, designed to develop cooperation with businesses interested in applying or marketing its results. The Dolnośląskie Centrum Materiałów i Biomateriałów (DCMiB) project sets out to encourage academic cooperation and build contact with industrial sectors through an analysis of the current and future need for high tech expertise. The results of the project will be used by other scientific research centres and the laboratories will be put at the disposal of external users.

Results

The project will see the construction of a total surface area of over 23 000 m2, on the 5.5ha on the Kampus Pracze site, which will include laboratory space, offices, social facilities, seminar and conference rooms along with technical installations. The laboratories will be organised into units and equipped with the necessary equipment to conduct research, by 2013. Thirty laboratories will be established, and will then be able to provide services to industry and other research organisations.The project is divided into five phases: construction of the laboratory sites, purchasing of equipment, recruitment and staff training, accreditation procedures and awareness-raising. These phases will involve the repair, alteration and construction of the buildings which will house the laboratories for research into, among other areas, chemical compounds, surfaces and solids. These laboratories will also be used for work on electron microscopy (nanotechnology).Other nanotechnology laboratories will host research into the manufacture of optical fibres, the development of micro-laser technology and the fabrication of photo voltaic structures. Research will also cover targeted drug carriers, biomarkers and the diagnosis of cancer.
