The Associate Laboratory CICECO (http://www.ciceco.ua.pt/) was created on March 2002, with the mission of developing the scientific and technological knowledge necessary for the innovative production and transformation of ceramics and composite materials.

Our main areas of expertise are:

  • Advanced Micro- and Nano-Structured Materials for Communications Technologies (research lines Advanced molecular and supramolecular materials, Inorganic multifunctional materials and Organic-inorganic hybrids, Electroceramics,
  • Magnetostructural modulation of strongly correlated electric materials
  • Advanced Materials for Industrial Applications (Reactive ceramic components for process control, Ceramic composites and ultra-hard coatings for mechanical applications);
  • Chemistry and Technology of Polymeric and Lignocellulosic Materials and Biomaterials (Macromolecular materials and lignocelullosics, Biomedical and biomimetic materials, Process development and optimization).
