European Research: Georgios Katalagarianakis talks about EU Commission funding Scientific Research

Posted by Charbax – August 21, 2019

Georgios Katalagarianakis graduated as mining and metallurgy engineer from the National Technical University of Athens in 1976. He obtained a diploma on mechanical engineering from the University of Thessaloniki in 1989 and a PhD degree from the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine in 1998.

He has worked for ten years in the underground mining industry and the mineral resources authority of Greece before joining the European Commission in 1989 as administrator. He has been responsible for European research in the fields of mining and metallurgy, recycling, construction and maintenance of buildings and civil infrastructure, tunnelling, industrial safety and ergonomics, use of nanomaterials in buildings, etc. He is currently responsible for research in the area of nanotechnology safety.

Dr. Georgios Katalagarianakis is one of the founders and greatest influencers of the EU NanoSafety Cluster (NSC). Dr. Gatalagarianakis retired from his role in the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation and the NSC honoured and thanked him for his long and invaluable contribution to the nanotechnology and nanosafety scientific community. The ceremony took place during the NanoSafe 2018 conference, which took place in November 2018 in Grenoble, France.

The ceremony was hosted by The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), organised by the NSC Dissemination Group with the help of the Nanotechnology Industries Association and presented by Prof. Iseult Lynch of the University of Birmingham.

The NSC is an initiative of the European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD), which sponsors large nanotechnology and nanosafety projects through its European Frameworks.

The EU NanoSafety Cluster maximises the synergies between European-level projects addressing the safety of materials and technologies enabled by the use of nanoforms. The studied aspects include toxicology, ecotoxicology, exposure assessment, mechanisms of interaction, risk assessment and standardisation.

Overall, Europe targets safe and sustainable nanomaterials and nanotechnology innovations. Cluster projects contribute to assuring environmental health and safety (EHS) of this Key Enabling Technology.

Experts from the Nanotechnology Lab LTFN (http://www.ltfn.gr) of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, present the activities and innovations of the LTFN Lab in the fields of the development of flexible Organic Electronic devices (as Organic Photovoltaics, Organic Light Emitting Diodes and Organic Thin Film Transistors (OTFTs)). The infrastructure of the lab enhances the research, promotes collaborations (European and national projects), establishes networks (HOPE-A http://www.hope-a.com/, NanoNet http://www.nanonet.gr/) and supports the translation of the research results into commercialization of products and services (collaboration with SMEs).
An overview of the research activities of the Nanotechnology LTFN Lab in the framework of Horizon 2020 Projects is presented. These include the:
H2020 Factory of the Future (FoF) Project SmartLine (www.smartline-project.eu) which will create intelligent and zero-defect manufacturing processes by developing robust and non-destructive in-line metrology tools (optical, electrical, structural) and process control platform to achieve the reliable and closed-loop manufacturing of Organic Electronic devices (OPVs and OLEDs for lighting) by Roll-to-Roll Printing and Organic Vapour Phase Deposition (OVPD) pilot lines.
H2020 NMBP Project CORNET (https://www.cornet-project.eu) which will develop a unique EU Open Innovation Environment (OIE) covering the triangle of Manufacturing, Modelling and Experimentation. The project will also optimize the OLAE materials, behavior and nano-devices' manufacturing processes through multi-scale characterization and modelling. This will have huge impact on the fast and reliable development of new materials and devices, enabling the control of production processes for tailored OE devices fabrication and systems for industrial applications.
