Timelapse presentation of the construction of the project entitled “Research Innovation and Technology Center for New Materials” RITecC, which aims to overcome the barrier between Romanian research and its industrial applications in the field of advanced materials.
The building that hosts the “Research Innovation and Technology Center for New Materials” RITecC, is configured for research activities, predominantly for application-oriented research with an innovative technological impact. The new construction is connected with the existing NIMP headquarters, via a skyline situated at the 1st level. The new RITecC building offers NIMP a research space of about 2550 square meters. The space designed for research activities is divided into 21 laboratory- rooms, from which 345 square meters are allocated to the clean room and its facilities. The other 20 laboratory-rooms have large surfaces (between 75 and 170 sqm), to allow adequate technological streams for a research desired to be compatible with modern industrial processes.
By implementing this project, NIMP aims to develop advanced materials preparation technologies, with a high applicative potential, compatible with modern industrial processes, and also to develop adequate characterization methods for such materials.
