Project number:692034
Project acronym:TWINFUSYON
Project title:Twinning for Improving Capacity of Research in Multifunctional Nanosystems for Optronic Biosensing
Project duration:1 January 2016 – 31 December 2018

The project Twinning for Improving Capacity of Research in Multifunctional Nanosystems for Optronic Biosensing (TWINFUSYON) is a 3-year H2020 Twinning project initiated on 1st January 2016.

TWINNING is a new instrument of the Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation (SEWP) part of Horizon 2020 program. The philosophy of H2020 TWINNING projects lies in strengthening of a specific research field in a knowledge institution through linking it with internationally-leading partners via a number of institutional networking and training activities, including workshops, conferences, summer schools, and expert visits, as well as study visits, internships and counselling. The aim of the SEWP projects, including TWINNING, is to increase research quality and prestige of a coordinating institution from a country with lower efficiency in research, development and innovation through knowledge transfer and exchange of practices with leading institutions.

The TWINFUSYON project unites 4 partner-institutions Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC) of Masaryk University (MU), CNR-NANOTEC, Linz University (JKU), and CNRS-LNCMI under a single mission to seek opportunities in the development of nanotechnologies, new materials and structures with intelligent surfaces and exceptional mechanical, electrical, magnetic, optical and biological properties to develop novel design of an optronic biosensor.

The TWINFUSYON aim is to strengthen, to the highest European level, CEITEC MU scientific excellence and innovation capacity in nanosystems for a novel generation of label-free non-invasive optronic biosensing by harmonising integration of expertise in nanomaterials synthesis, characterisation at nanoscale, nanofabrication technologies, theory and modelling development, design of biosensors, which are the building blocks to innovate biosensing devices.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s
Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 692034.
