Atomic Scale Science For Innovative Economy (ATOMIN)

The project of Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science, and Faculty of Chemistry of the Jagiellonian University entitled Atomic Scale Science for Innovative Economy (ATOMIN) was successful in the first competition within the Operational Programme Innovative Economy, Action 2.1 Development of centres with high research potential.

We were granted with a total amount of 90 273 034, 42 PLN.

The project was running  from June 1, 2009 to November 30, 2012.

The main goal of the Project is to develop a research potential of the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Science and Faculty of Chemistry to be capable of undertaking advanced research in Bio, Techno and Info domains. Modernization and consolidation of a scientific apparatus to the European level will allow transferring of knowledge and technology to the national and European economy, increase high-level personnel training and international scientific cooperation.

As a result, several interfaculty Laboratories were created. It includes: Advanced Materials, Nanotechnology and Surface Science, Biomedical Applications of Physics and Chemistry, Photonics, Spectroscopy and Laser Quantum Technologies as well as Advanced Computation Technologies. The laboratories were equipped with modern scientific apparatus allowing high-level research involving 120 researchers and 500 students.
