CINN’s research is devoted to the Controlled Design of Multiscaled Multifunctional Materials aiming at the development, characterization and full understanding of new multifunctional materials at the nano, micro and macro scales.

The scientific emphasis includes reproducing principles or structures described in animals or plants through bioinspired materials, developing biomaterials offering clinical applications in terms of compatibility, degradability and cell-matrix interactions, examining the behavior and fundamental properties of nanostructured magnetic hybrid materials, complex oxides, bio-inorganic hybrids, nanophotonic phenomena, and assisted self-assembly to provide insights into future applications. Theory and simulation is integrated throughout the CINN’s activities.
