Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute for Sustainable Technologies (Sieć Badawcza Łukasiewicz - Instytut Technologii Eksploatacji) in Radom, Poland has built up innovation performance in the areas of machine construction and maintenance and technical and environmental safety for nearly 30 years. On Wednesday, 22nd, and Thursday, 23rd of February 2023, our colleagues from the research group Deposition of Thin Films and Nanostructures joined a meeting with Łukasiewicz and companies PLATIT in Switzerland, GFE in Germany and colleagues from Hungary.
All interested sides deal with their research and businesses in coating technologies and their applications. The main focus is magnetron sputtering technology. Private companies are often interested in researching new materials and innovative technologies. Our CEPLANT researchers can contribute to developing new materials, tuning the technology manufacturing process, and diagnostics of the process and plasma.
As a result of this meeting, two new projects are being prepared. Both are in cooperation with Polish and Hungarian researchers. One project would aim at coatings for cutting tools and the second for antibacterial coatings. Projects will be submitted in the international cofund call M-ERA.net.
