The mission of ITS SASA is to encourage and promote fundamental and applied research in those areas of engineering and natural sciences that focus on the development of multifunctional nanostructured materials, biomaterials, sensor systems and photovoltaic power sources, as well as the storage of power obtained from those sources.
The aim of the research conducted at ITS SASA is to develop innovative technologies that can be applied in the industry and society, and to promote high technologies nationally and internationally. Having identified the relevance of the global power crisis and environmental pollution, ITS SASA has undertaken research in the area of photovoltaic energy. Its ultimate goal is to develop methods for the characterization of photovoltaic systems and introduce photovoltaic energy in the Serbian power system, in the context of the transition to renewable power sources and the global striving to reduce carbon emissions. In order to achieve this goal, many problems must be solved. They are largely related to the unmanageable character of solar energy production and require a multidisciplinary approach in the areas of electronics, power industry, chemistry and materials science. These requirements allow ITS SASA to show its quality and diversity in relation to other research organizations in Serbia.
The activities of ITS SASA rest upon high academic and ethical values, the principles of Open Science, social responsibility, as well as on the full awareness of the institute’s strengths and weaknesses and readiness to seek solutions.
Role of Institute of Technical Sciences of SASA in Euro-MIC
Researchers from the Institute of Technical Sciences of SASA have a large experience in development, synthesis and characterization, of functional materials with both antibacterial and anticorrosion properties. The accent of our research in the Euro-MIC project is on synthesis and characterization of calcium phosphate materials (amorphous calcium phosphate, hydroxyapatite, BCP, alpha-TCP, beta-TCP), ZnO, Ca(OH)2 and Mg(OH)2. These materials will be tested as coatings for anticorrosion and antibacterial application.
Besides, due to our expertise we’ll be able to organize round tables, workshops, and training for researchers, students, and all other stakeholders.
