FriMat in the scientific landscape
 
FriMat will be operated as an open research platform. All relevant local research groups will be invited to participate at the project level to conduct interdisciplinary development of Nanomaterials research and advanced materials.
As the focal point of Nanomaterials research in Fribourg, FriMat will actively seek collaborations with materials research institutions worldwide. A close collaboration with national research institutions is highly desirable.
 
At the project level, the research teams will work hand-in-hand across disciplines. In addition, FriMat will provide services to local industries at large through the Industrial Consortium located at Plateau de Pérolles.
 
FriMat will connect with other organizations aimed at promoting Nanomaterials science to keep abreast of international research and market trends and to arouse awareness of the general public on the development of nanotechnology.
